3D Realms have confirmed that Duke Nukem 3D for Live Arcade has passed Microsoft Certification on the first try.
For the uninitiated, that means that the game has been cleared for release pending an open slot.
Speaking to Shacknews, 3D Realms Head Honcho George Broussard said: “We officially passed final cert on our first try Friday, August 15th,” When asked about a possible price point, he noted that it will be “about what you’d expect.”
Hopefully, it’ll hit Arcade very soon.
