Retro City Rampage Confirmed for Q1 2014 and a Discount Price on 3DS
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
The release will also hit Australia and New Zealand
Retro City Rampage was a welcome slice of anarchic madness on WiiWare, though the flaws of the service and a download userbase long gone blunted the title's impact on Nintendo's system. Nevertheless, it was released on pretty much every other platform, so it was pleasing when the 3DS was confirmed as joining the Rampage.
Although initially aiming for a 2013 arrival, Vblank Entertainment's Brian Provinciano has confirmed that despite the title going to Nintendo for approval in early December it didn't quite make it out for a release on the handheld this year. Nevertheless this version is confirmed for Q1 2014 with a price of $9.99 in North America, which is $5 lower than the standard price on other platforms. Another positive is that it'll also arrive in Australia and New Zealand as well as Europe and North America; 2014 will be the first time the title arrives Down Under.
We had a lot of fun with this on WiiWare, as you can see in our review, and expect more of the same on 3DS. Are you tempted to pick this up on the portable?
