100 WiiWare Copies of Retro City Rampage Are Up for Grabs To Celebrate Anniversary

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

And yes, they can be played on a Wii U

Retro City Rampage is one year old, a landmark for Vblank Entertainment's labour of love that parodies and references a boggling amount of '80s and '90s pop culture. It's a full-on, in your face experience, which may explain why it has such a loyal fanbase.

The title isn't done yet, of course, with a 3DS eShop release on the way, but it's Nintendo home console fans that have a chance for a treat in the latest celebration of the game's anniversary. The developer is giving away 100 WiiWare copies of the game — which are playable on the Wii U with the Wii mode — to those based in North America. If you want a chance to win just follow the instructions below.

Step 1.
Become a fan of Retro City Rampage on Facebook

Where did you get this many copies?!

Not entering since I don't have a Facebook or Twitter account.

I don't use Facebook or Twitter. Nevermind; I downloaded Retro City Rampage on my Wii-U when it first released. Only Wiiware title I downloaded since I transferred my software. I wish it was more like DSi which can be purchased alongside 3DS in the eShop.

I haven't received the confirmation email for the newsletter, is that normal?

Just to be clear, "Become a Fan" means "Like", right? Because I don't see a "Become a Fan" button.

Awesome, hope I win (so the backlog can continue to never go down)

I already liked RCR on Facebook and have been signed up for the newsletter for a couple years. However, my concern is that even people who don't have a Wii can like the Facebook page and sign up for the newsletter. So a bunch of PS3/360/PC owners are going to be getting codes for the Wii that are of no use to them. Meanwhile, I really want to win this game!!

I just signed up. I was waiting for this to hit the 3DS eShop, but this works too. Good luck everyone!

Good luck to everyone, it's a great game I already bought at launch on WiiWare, hope you enjoy if you win!

You know, I have a Facebook account just to participate in contests like this.

I already have the WiiWare version of the game, though, so there's no point in me entering this one.

Maybe I'll win. I have a better chance than Nintendo or Microsoft's hardware give-aways where millions of entries clutter the Twitter and Facebook pages.

Signed up due to this post and guess what... I Actually Won! Thanks Nintendo Life. I wouldn't have known about this contest unless I read this site.
