3D Realms has announced a name change Voidpoint’s ’90s throwback shooter Ion Maiden. It is now titled Ion Fury.

Ion Maiden will be released as Ion Fury when it arrives on PC August 15.

The name change comes on the heels of a suit filed by the band Iron Maiden which claimed trademark infringement over the title Ion Maiden.

Iron Maiden filed the suit as it believed the game’s logo and title would confuse the public when it comes to “appearance, sound, and overall commercial impression.”

Hopefully the change made to the title will pacify the band.

Ion Fury stars  Shelly Harrison, who originally debuted in 2016 game Bombshell.  In the game, she is out to stop Dr. Jadus Heskel and his army of cyber-cultists using her Loverboy revolver and Bowling Bombs.

 

The game was crafted using the Build engine which powered games such as Duke Nukem 3D, Blood and Shadow Warrior giving it the ultimate ’90s feel.

Despite the throwback, it contains modernized  features such as auto-saves, improved physics and map interactivity. The game will also support widescreen and controller support when it releases on PC August 15.  It is also coming to consoles at a later date.
