A few weeks ago an Iron Maiden lawsuit against Ion Maiden was made public, the retro-action video game developed with the graphic engine of the memorable Duke Nukem 3D, which the British group accused of taking advantage of its name to confuse its followers and thus gain popularity. Outcome? 3D Realms has just announced that Ion Maiden is renamed Ion Fury, and has also confirmed that this frantic shooting game will go on sale in August.
A new trailer allows us to see this shoot in action in a retro style that seeks to recreate the emotions of classics such as DOOM or Duke Nukem. ” After careful consideration, we have decided to change the name of our action video game Ion Maiden to Ion Fury, “said Mike Nielsen, head of 3D Realms.
” We thought a lot about it but what more important is that we would be doing a disservice to our loyal followers and the fantastic developers if we get involved in a long legal dispute, “adds the manager. ” Your fantastic action, interaction and pure fun make Ion Fury a great videogame, not your name ” For now only its release on PC, where the game opens on August 15 has been finalized.
