Vblank Entertainment's Retro City Rampage has always looked awfully nice, but it was a shame the open-world love letter to ye olden days was only headed to WiiWare and Xbox Live Arcade. Rejoice, then! The indie developer has confirmed that it'll also hit PC, and PlayStation 3 and Vita via PlayStation Network.
Wrapped up in a Grand Theft Auto-style murder simulator, Retro City Rampage is sprinkled with references to lovely things from the 8-bit era, dipping into other classic genres.
Retro City Rampage is now slated to launch in May. You can pre-order the PC edition now for $14.99, which gets you a DRM-free version plus a key to activate it on Steam if you fancy. You also get a 10-track "mini-soundtrack," print-ready box and cartridge label for that full NES experience, and a 20%-off coupon for RCR merchandise.
Here's a recent teaser trailer showing off the overworld action:
