So 3D Realms announced this game and omg, classic FPS fun! On top of this game coming out next year(Q2), they also announced an untitled classic FPS they are working on. Cool beans.

I am pretty hyped for the Switch version tbh. Really itching for some new games to play on it and Iron Maiden looks perfect

Can it be called "classic" when it's technically new? Eitherway it looks interesting and Switch will be my preferred way to play it.

Yeah, this is a new game, not a "classic" in the commonly understood meaning of the term. It's being made with an updated version of the Build Engine that was used for Duke Nukem 3D, and the development team is a group of Duke 3D modders and level designers who used to hangout on the 3D Realms forum back in the day (I used to interact with them regularly). Basically, this is a labor of love from real gamers who love old school games.
