Retro City Rampage: DX will get an update in the near future which will allow it to take advantage of the New 3DS and its additional controls, creator Brian Provinciano has revealed.
Provinciano posted the news to Twitter, stating that the updated hardware offers the kind of interface he wanted for the game all along. Retro City Rampage: DX was originally supposed to support the Circle Pad Pro, but Provinciano removed this option before release because he wasn't satisfied with the way it played.
The New 3DS was announced for Japanese release during a recent Nintendo Direct and launches in that region in October. The western launch isn't expected until 2015.
