Uh oh, Duke — you’re no longer the only cat with a set of hard shiny ones. Apogee Software, the studio responsible for the three upcoming handheld iterations of the Duke Nukem franchise, has trademarked “Balls of Steel.” Groovy.
As with all filings, it’s impossible to ascertain what Balls of Steel will become. It’d be nice if it were a full retail release with all the cute little frills (strippers and flushable urinals) we’ve come to expect from a Nukem title. Unfortunately, games starring the Duke have a tendency to disappear, reappear, and then teased for a stretch of years … so, uh, we’ll wait until something solid comes through the pipeline before getting excited.
