Duke Nukem: Critical Mass Goes Critical Next Week



Way back in August 2010, when we were all younger, the ESRB rated Duke Nukem: Critical Mass for the Nintendo DS and gave it a “T” rating. Then, the game disappeared from the public eye, until it released in Europe last month.


Today, publisher, Koch Media, announced that Critical Mass is still coming to the U.S. as well — they have it scheduled for a May 25th release in the U.S. The game will include a two-player co-op mode and three difficulty settings. Critical Mass will span thirty stages across nine locations.


Story-wise, it’s the kind of nutty. Duke is sent into a future where mankind has been wiped out and all the babes have been captured and enslaved by aliens.
