Retro City Rampage DX Coming To PC, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Vita… And WiiWare



Earlier this year, VBlank Entertainment released an updated version of Retro City Rampage for the Nintendo 3DS, titled Retro City Rampage: DX. This version of the game included new features and tweaks over the original, which are mentioned in the trailer above.


Now, DX is spreading to other platforms. VBlank will release the game on PC, Mac, Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita as a free update to the original. Yes, VBlank are going to the effort of updating the old WiiWare version of RCR with the new features, and say it’s a way of saying thank you to everyone that supported the game’s original release.


Meanwhile, PlayStation owners that don’t already own the game will have the ability to buy the game once and play it across all three PlayStation platforms. You’ll also be able to transfer your save data from the original to the new version via the Cross-Save feature.


PC/Mac owners will be able to buy the game once and play across both those platforms as well.


Finally, VBlank say that they also have plans to update the Nintendo 3DS version of Retro City Rampage, once the New Nintendo 3DS is released in the West. The update will add support for the device’s new buttons, and marks the second time an indie developer has pledged to update their game for New 3DS before the device has even been released (the first time being WayForward with Shantae).


Retro City Rampage DX will be released on PlayStation platforms on November 11th. WiiWare will get the game on November 13th, and this will also mark the first time the game has been available on WiiWare in Australia and New Zealand. Meanwhile, PC, Mac and Xbox 360 will get the game sometime next week, too.
