“Retro City Rampage” has been released on the Nintendo Wii in the form of a WiiWare title. This release has been confirmed by Nintendo’s official website. The downloadable game was released on this day, Feb. 28, 2013 at a price of 1000 Wii Points (which is the equivalent of $10). The game was originally released on Oct. 9, 2012 for the Playstation 3, Playstation Vita and PC. It was also released on the Xbox Live Marketplace on Jan. 2, 2013.
“Retro City Rampage” was originally created by Brian Provinciano as an 8-bit remake of one of his favorite games, “Grand Theft Auto 3”. As he continued to create the game, it began to have many differences from his original vision. After some time, he decided to make the game into something completely new, and “Retro City Rampage” was born.
“Retro City Rampage” is a parody of the open world action game genre, which was made popular through titles like “Grand Theft Auto” and “Red Dead Redemption”. The game takes the modern gameplay of those titles and puts them in an 8-bit environment, similar to games found on the NES. The player controls an anti-hero who completes missions for various characters in the world. The player can use many methods to defeat their enemies, several of which are used byt characters from other video games. The game is also filled with references to various other games, ranging from obvious to subtle.
