The sequel to the macho hit videogame Duke Nukem from the 1990s will hit stores June 14. Gamers have been waiting 14 years for Duke Nukem Forever. Some fans even pre-ordered the game back in 1997.

MARY LOUISE KELLY, host:

And our last word today in business is "Duke Nukem Forever."

(Soundbite of video game, "Duke Nukem Forever")

Mr. JON ST. JOHN (Actor): (as Duke Nukem) What? Did you think I was gone forever?

(Soundbite of music, gunfire)

KELLY: The sequel to the macho hit video game from the '90s is out, finally. "Duke Nukem Forever" is scheduled to hit stores June 14th, and gamers have been waiting a long time for this - 14 years to be exact. Some fans pre-ordered the game back in 1997. Fortunately for them, the video game chain store GameStop says it will honor pre-orders from 1997, provided customers still have the receipt.

That's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

And I'm Renee Montagne.
