Ion Maiden

Yesterday, 1C Entertainment announced two games for the Nintendo Switch:

  • Ion Maiden (developed by Voidpoint, and co-published by 3D Realms and 1C Publishing)

Ion Maiden is a retro first-person shooter developed in the Build engine: the same one that powered classics such as Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, and Shadow Warrior. It’s a prequel to Bombshell, which sees Shelly having to take down transhumanist mastermind Dr. Jadus Heskel. It will be released in Q2 2019 in Europe and North America, at retail and on the Nintendo eShop. It’s playable in the following languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian.
