Retro City Rampage Storming Onto WiiWare Soon

Updated version coming to European shores

Popular download title Retro City Rampage has been available on PC, Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita for a while now in North America. The game has recently been tweaked and updated to give the player a better experience, and now it's coming to a multitude of platforms in Europe, including WiiWare.

For those new to the game, Retro City Rampage takes the open-world action genre and makes a unique parody of it, taking modern game mechanics and crushing them all into an authentically sleek 8-bit experience. You play as the bad guy as you go around stopping evil do-gooders and generally causing havoc - who doesn't want to play as the bad guy?

The tweaks made by Vblank Entertainment, the game’s developer, include faster cars, additional tutorials, tips screens, shop icons on the map, checkpoints and level balancing. Some of the missions have even been completely overhauled in an attempt to make them better. Of course WiiWare and all Europeans in general have never had access to the game so won't notice the changes at all; those in North America may notice a few subtle differences, though.

It's currently under "console certification" for WiiWare and Xbox Live Arcade, so should be out fairly soon in Europe and North America.
