Today, a post on the PlayStation Blog confirmed that Retro City Rampage, the old-school inspired game previously announced for Xbox 360 and Wii, would be coming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita as well.
Brian Provinciano, a developer at Vblank Entertainment, told the PlayStation Blog plenty about their upcoming game with a title clearly inspired by the NES classic River City Ransom. "Fans of Grand Theft Auto will feel right at home with RCR, but the missions extend far beyond driving and shooting. They fuse classic gaming and modern mechanics to span virtually every genre, from stealth to platforming, adventure, rhythm and more -- there are even underwater levels. What I'm most proud of is that everything flows together using the same mechanics and visuals. Even missions inspired by '80s coin-op games seamlessly take place in the open-world."
Retro City Rampage comes packed with 50 missions, 30 "fast-paced, score-based challenges" in the game's Arcade Mode, and over 25 weapons. It's unclear when the game's set to release or if it'll support any sort of cross-play functionality between PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
