Retro City Rampage: DX Set For February Release on the 3DS eShop

Will be $9.99 in North America

Fans of Retro City Rampage have had plenty of opportunities to buy the game, but there's one more platform to go — the 3DS eShop. The good news is that the freshly-named Retro City Rampage: DX has now been submitted to Nintendo for approval in Europe and has already passed in North America; its progress in the latter region is such that it's set to arrive this month.

With a February release in the pipeline for North America, Vblank Entertainment has updated its Facebook page with confirmation of the new name and a price of $9.99 in the region. As for Europe, the game's taking a little longer to go through the approval process, so no guarantee is given yet for it to arrive this month.

The DX part of the name is to acknowledge the various tweaks and improvements said to have been put in place for this 3DS version. The developer promises more details on those improvements in the coming week — we do already know of Circle Pad Pro support, for example — though Vblank did say this when answering an enquiry on Facebook.

Many of the updates are in PC v1.16, but the 3DS contains more. Every mission's received another edit pass in order to format it ideally for the 3DS.

If you want to know more in the meantime, be sure to check out our interview with Vblank Entertainment's Brian Provinciano. Are you looking forward to Retro City Rampage: DX on the 3DS eShop?
