You may not be able to find it on retail shelves any time soon, but Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded, a fan remake (developed by Danish Interceptor Entertainment) of the classic first-person shooter has been greenlighted by Gearbox Software, the current holders of the license. This is an unprecedented move in the gaming industry, where many fan projects based on franchises like Streets of Rage, Chrono Trigger, Ultima IV and King's Quest have seen their projects taken down by cease-and-desist orders (although the former is still, technically speaking, available).

In addition to getting the go-ahead from the top brass, Interceptor has also hired John St. John, Duke's voice actor, to record new lines for the game. A demo is in the works as well.

Now if only Black Mesa could come out sometime this decade, then everything will be right in the world.
