In this morning’s wee hours Vblank Entertainment sent out a notice stating the studio’s long-anticipated arcade action driving title Retro City Rampage is now available on Steam for PC as well as on the PS Vita and PlayStation 3 in North America. The game will be available on EU PlayStation later this month, and will be on WiiWare and XBLA later this year. You can also purchase the game directly from the Retro City Rampage site, which will give you both a DRM-free copy as well as a Steam copy. Purchasing through the PlayStation network for either the PS3 or Vita will give you a free copy for the other device.
For those of you who pre-ordered the game, you can head over to the link in the email you received with your order. If you can’t find the email, go to the key resender page and have re-emailed to the address you gave on your pre-order. If you live in the USA and would like to demo the game on your PS Vita, head to your nearest GameStop store. Want the soundtrack? It’s available on vinyl, CD or there’s a digital version.
A parody of the open-world action genre, Retro City Rampage takes modern game mechanics and mashes them into an authentic 8-bit experience.
Equal parts fast paced arcade action and an epic mission based story mode, it’s all the driving and shooting you’d expect and a whole lot more! With missions that twist pages straight from classic game experiences, you get to re-live and rewrite history in a way only a modern anti-hero could!
When it comes to enemies, weapons are only the beginning! Put on your boots and jump on their heads! Toss ’em around to knock the rest down! Become truly unstoppable with awesome power-ups!
Through its world, characters and missions, Retro City Rampage lampoons the entire 8-bit era –from its games to the TV, movies and pop culture!
