Wasteland Kings Is Now Nuclear Throne

Name game


Vlambeer have announced that splendid-looking shooter Wasteland Kings is being renamed Nuclear Throne. It seems that this move is in no small part down to concerns expressed by inXile over possible confusion over the contemporaneous development of Wasteland 2. They explain that "It’s a bit of an haphazard announcement, with Justin Chan’s beautiful artwork above still not being finished, without us having a new logo and before we’ve been able to properly change the name on all the platforms officially, but we thought that if we’re doing open development we might just as well be open about it."

You can watch the Eurogamer Expo Wasteland Kings presentation, in which the name change is mentioned, below.
