While most of us in the UK were tucked up in bed last night, Gearbox Software only went and officially announced Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour for consoles and PC this October. If you're looking for an actual date when the game with the longest name ever will see a release, you can expect it to drop on October 11th in the US, with us in the UK getting it on Oct 12th if the Xbox Store link is to be believed.
