Ion Maiden Renamed Ion Fury To Avoid Legal Issues

3D Realms, 1C Entertainment, and Voidpoint have announced that their old-school first-person shooter Ion Maiden has been renamed Ion Fury, in an effort “to avoid legal issues with a certain popular heavy metal band.”

Created with the Build engine that was used to power ’90s classics like Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, and Shadow Warrior, Ion Fury stars Shelly “Bombshell” Harrison who has a deadly date with Dr. Jadus Heskel and his cyber-cultist army.

With auto-saves, improved physics, map interactivity, and headshots that weren’t possible back then, you will use signature weapons – such as Harrison’s Loverboy revolver and Bowling Bombs – to defeat the cyborgs that you are confronted with.

“After careful consideration, we’ve decided to rename our first-person-shooter ‘Ion Maiden’ to ‘Ion Fury,'” explains 3D Realms CEO Mike Nielsen.

“A lot of thought went into this, but most importantly it would be a disservice to our loyal fanbase and the fantastic developers, to drag out a long lawsuit. The amazing gameplay, interactivity and pure fun, is what makes Ion Fury a great game. Not the title.”

Ion Fury will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
