Free Update Arriving Simultaneously For PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC
AALBORG, Denmark / GIEBELSTADT, Germany 12 February 2019 — Rad Rodgers, an homage to classic ’90s-era platformers from developer Slipgate Studios and publishers 3D Realms and HandyGames, a THQ Nordic company, locks and loads on Nintendo Switch 26 February with all-new content including local co-op, versus mode, and the King himself, Duke Nukem. Every new addition will come to the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC via a free update.
Fight alongside or against buddies in Radical Edition’s new local co-op and versus modes. Plop down with a buddy to team up to take down the baddies and save the videogame world. Need to get out some aggression? Lay on the smack down in Battle Mode to show them who’s boss.
The Radical Edition adds ‘90s gaming icons Duke Nukem, Lo Wang from Shadow Warrior, Cosmo from Cosmo’s Cosmic Adventure and Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison from Bombshell and the upcoming Ion Maiden. Let Rad catch some Z’s and take one of these mondo classic characters for a spin. Oh, and, hail to the king baby, Jon St. John is back to reprise his role as Duke Nukem. Other totally tubular features include new levels, abilities, mini-games, a new overworld and tons of new secrets, collectables and unlockables.
“We love Rad, and we thought he deserved some awesome new friends to play with,” said Frederik Schreiber, co-owner of 3D Realms. “With new levels, weapons, couch co-op and a versus mode, I think our fans may have a hard time putting this game down.”
Rad Rodgers: Radical Edition is developed by Slipgate Studios and will be published by 3D Realms and HandyGames. Rad Rodgers: Radical Edition launches on Nintendo Switch™ 26 February, with a free content update to PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, across the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X and PC at launch.
About Rad Rodgers
After being sucked into the gaming world, Rad Rodgers and his foul-mouthed living game console Dusty set out on a totally awesome quest inspired by ‘90s classics like Commander Keen and Jazz Jackrabbit. Jump, run and gun across seven gorgeous, vibrant levels filled with action. Rad wields wicked weapons like Bolt Blasters and Phoenix Cannons to blast baddies. Dusty helps out by crossing into The Pixelverse, a behind-the-scenes area that enables him to fix broken parts of the game world.
