Retro City Rampage will certainly be a welcome release on the 3DS eShop, making its way to Nintendo's portable after its appearance on WiiWare and a host of other platforms. It's an anarchic game full of energy, so could certainly be ideal for some escapism on the go.

With development ongoing the developer, Vblank Entertainment, has posted an update on its Facebook page to confirm that the title will support the Circle Pad Pro and, by extension, the Circle Pad Pro XL. This is good news, in our book, as the dual stick controls of the Classic Controller / Pro were our main choice when reviewing the WiiWare version. The control setup with two analogue sticks — or Circle Pads in this case — accommodates an intuitive free aiming shooting mechanic, which should prove useful in trickier sections of the game.

Are you planning to pick this up on the 3DS eShop when it eventually arrives? Let us know in the comments below, and if you want to know more about the game you can check out our interview with Brian Provinciano.
