June 23rd is Duke Nukem day on XBLA

Mark your calendars, Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project is hitting Xbox Live Arcade on June 23rd for 800 Microsoft Points. For those not convinced about the 2D blast fest that appeared on PCs back in the day, don’t fret, there will be a free demo of it too, as with all XBLA titles. But buying and playing the full game will give you some Avatar swag, so you might want to get yours ready for a Duke Nukem T-shirt and a friggin’ jetpack.

The games’ official website reminds of what’s going on Duke’s big city adventure: “Duke Nukem is back! New York City is being overrun by a mutant menace and it’s time to de-worm the Big Apple. This explosive 3D action game features Duke Nukem defending the city that never sleeps, and its babes, from the evil Mech Morphix across 24 levels from Chinatown to Space. A super-sized collection of weapons, enemies and bosses await. As Duke would say, “Babes, Bullets, Bombs. I love this job!”
