It’s been a recent cause for frustration for EU PlayStation owners that Retro City Rampage has been missing from our store since its US release almost a month ago. Worry no longer, Europeans (and Asians, by the way), it’s coming next week on January 16th.
The developer, Brian Provinciano, says in the press release “I greatly appreciate everyone’s patience. Your wait was not without merit and you’ll be enjoying the best possible game from day one. It boasts an additional month of development, polish and improvements since the original North American release, which has dominated the charts; sitting at #1 on PS Vita downloads since it was released”
The game is Cross Buy and Cross Save compatible, so the $14.99 price nabs you a version for PS3 and for Vita and your save works on both. If you’re not convinced yet, take a look at the fifteen minute developer overview below and see if this mix of top-down open world nostalgia and tongue-in-cheek sending up of videogames and their culture from the ’80s and ’90s is up your street.
