Brian Provinciano, the man behind Retro City Rampage, has finally got the European PlayStation 3 release all sorted, the tweaked version with SCEE for certification – or will be soon. Whilst it released in the US some weeks back, it’s been silent over here from both the developer and the platform holder.
“As the remaining SKUs were not yet out the door at the time of launch, I made the decision to take this as an opportunity to ensure that at minimum, those still waiting for the game would get a better experience from the get-go,” said Brian, speaking to Eurogamer on why some versions landed well before the others.
Whilst there’s currently no release date, we’re hoping that the game will move quickly through SCEE’s notoriously QA procedures and not face too much in the way of delays going forward.
For everyone that’s already got the game, an update has been released that expands on some of the side missions, tweaks some speed issues and more checkpoints have been introduced to assist players struggling with the game’s difficulty levels.
Retro City Rampage is great fun, especially for those fond of the 8-bit style. It’s been selling incredibly well in the States, so let’s hope that the rather expanded release window won’t have put off too may European players who have had to make do with guessing when the game will be next mentioned this side of the pond.
