Press Release

North American Release Date for Duke Nukem: Critical MassTM

Apogee Software today announced the North American release date for the upcoming action title Duke Nukem: Critical Mass™ celebrating Duke Nukem’s long overdue return to the gaming world and his first ever adventure for the Nintendo DS™ handheld system.

Duke is sent into the future; a future of total chaos and disaster where humankind has been nearly wiped out, all the babes have been captured and enslaved, and aliens rule with an iron fist; a world in trouble with horrendous monsters, alien pig cops, ridiculously oversized bosses and, of course, beautiful, scantily-clad babes galore – this game has all the ingredients a serious Duke Nukem fan needs.

Join Duke on his one-man mission to obliterate the aliens, save the babes, and repopulate the planet: “Don’t worry ladies, there’s plenty of Duke to go around!”

With a total of seven different game-play modes, including two user activated modes, three difficulty settings, two player co-op, fifteen meat-grinding weapons, nine huge locations with over thirty exciting levels, nine monstrous bosses, and of course…BABES, Duke Nukem: Critical Mass is overflowing with loads of entertainment, leaving only one question: “Who wants some?”

Duke Nukem: Critical Mass will be released on May 25, 2011 in North America.
