We may have mentioned Duke Nukem Forever at one time or another here at Marooners’ Rock. It is a game we are very much looking forward to, even more so now that a special edition release (and you know we love special editions) has been announced for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC to coincide with the game’s launch, May 3rd. In keeping with Duke Nukem’s style and pinache, the special edition will be known as the Balls of Steel edition. With a $100 price tag, the Balls of Steel edition will be available in North America only, and only from Amazon or GameStop.
What comes in a Duke Nukem Forever: Balls of Steel collector’s edition? What does 14 years of waiting get you? Quite a lot, in fact:
- Limited-edition numbered certificate of authenticity
- Duke Nukem Forever postcards
- Duke Nukem Forever radioactive symbol sticker
- Duke Nukem Forever radioactive symbol dice pair
- Duke Nukem Forever paper craft
- Duke Nukem Forever collectible comic book
- Duke Nukem Forever mini-card deck
- Duke Nukem Forever poker chips
- A 100-page hardcover book – The History, Legacy & Legend: Duke Nukem Forever Art from the Vault
- And the pièce de résistance, a collectible bust of Duke, with the words “Carpe Nukem” engraved on the base.
I guess 2K Games ran out of bubblegum.
