Retro City Rampage dated for US; coming to Europe later this month



Retro City Rampage is to be released on PS3 and PS Vita this month, creator Brian Provinciano has confirmed. 

The title is a homage to all things 8-bit, basing its levels on Metal Gear, Ninja Gaiden, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and taking the guise of a GTA style adventure.

According to Provinviano it'll be released on PSN for PS3 and PS Vita on October 9, in the US at least.

As for Europe, we'll here's what the press release has to say:

"Retro City Rampage is finally launching October 9th on PS3 and PS Vita in North America and on PC, Steam and GOG worldwide. The European PS3 and PS Vita releases will follow later this month, WiiWare following shortly after that. The XBLA version is 99.9% ready to get out the door, but still waiting for a release slot."

We are particularly looking forward to the PS Vita version as we feel it'll be a perfect fit for the handheld.

Nice, this has been on my radar for a while. Let's hope there's some sort of cross buy for ps3 and vita,

It is a cross buy title. Confirmed months ago.

Sounds like Provinciano finally had enough of Microsoft's inexplicable stalling of the game's release. Good for him, he gave them far more time than he reasonably should have to get their act together and certify the game already. Will be buying for PS3/Vita for sure.

The cross play is a pretty good idea, that hopefully Nintendo will be copying with some 3DS/Wii U games. That would be a turnout for the books, Nintendo copying Sony for a change instead of the other way round.

That would be some incredibly backwards world GLORIA. I can't even imagine such a thing

Jesus, the XBLA release planning thing is so backwards. How devs have to fit into slots and cant just release when there ready even if it is on a certain day. Then we have the PS stupidity of the US store and EU store getting different games at different times, sometimes months apart. Ridiculous. I hope they sort this out in the next gen.
