Retro City Rampage is finally coming to Europe
North American and European PlayStation releases go back and forth. Sometimes EU gets the game first, sometimes its NA. So long as we all get it, we all win. Retro City Rampage is coming to Europe and the UK as a complete release including any and all fixes the North American version receive in patch form.
It may be premature to say but don’t expect a day one patch for Retro City Rampage when it finally releases on the EU PlayStation Store. While we don’t know for sure when it will happen, we do know that it is either in or has passed SCEE’s certification process.
The wait shouldn’t be long, and is well worth it regardless of whether you think this is acceptable or not. Retro City Rampage is a one-man-band production, taking time and money that is typically a rare commodity when manufacturing a video game in today’s market. Brian Provinciano has been working on this baby for the past 7 years.
Now that the game is done we can reflect on what has been accomplished. Retro City Rampage is an ode to the era of 8-bit gaming, not only in its presentation, but also in its ability to pay homage to the things we miss most about the 80s all the while offering a tall story and lots of gameplay.
Retro City Rampage is out now in North America for PS3 and Vita. Its coming soon to EU/UK for PS3, Vita, Wii, and XBLA. Provinciano is not only the developer for Retro City Rampage, he’s also the publisher and neither of those titles are easy accomplishments. Do save the UK/EU equivalent of $14.99 for this game when it hits your regions PlayStation Store, you won’t regret it…unless you were born in the 90s.
