Retro City Rampage: Relive The Good Ol' Glory Days In May
Images like these...they just open the memory floodgates.
If you occasionally pine for the good ol' 8-bit days, developer Brian Provinciano and Vblank Entertainment has a little treat in store for you.
It's Retro City Rampage and as the ambitious designer announced at the PlayStation Blog, his new project is not only coming to WiiWare and the Xbox Live Arcade, it's also going to arrive on the PS3 and PlayStation Vita.
This is an old-school open-world adventure "that combines everything you loved in classic games and mashes them up into a 'toon town' of nostalgia and parody." Mario-like, you can leap on pedestrians to grab coins, and then you can steal cars ala GTA and collect power-ups ala...well, pick any number of a hundred titles. Heck, there's even a light gun and a bionic arm. Retro goodness everywhere!
The really cool part is that beneath that old-fashioned exterior lies a jack-of-all-trades; a game that boasts elements from most every genre, including stealth, platforming, adventure, action, and even rhythm. There's even a full Story mode featuring over 50 missions, plus an Arcade mode with over 30 challenges and 25+ weapons and power-ups. The best part is that we don't have too long to wait: Provinciano told Joystiq that Retro City Rampage should arrive on all targeted platforms in May.
