Retro City Rampage confirmed for 3DS

Retro-style crime spree will be playable at PAX expo

Nintendo has confirmed that developer Vblank Entertainment is working on a 3DS version of its popular GTA-inspired download title, Retro City Rampage.

The 3DS version will be playable for the first time at the PAX Prime event, which takes place from Aug 30 to September 2 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle.


No further details were announced but the first screenshots shared by the developer via Destructoid show the map, score and other HUD elements shifted to the lower screen leaving the upper display to focus on gameplay.

Retro City Rampage is an 8-bit-style open-world urban game that plays homage to the original top-down Grand Theft Auto games on PS1, and contains parodies of several other classics.

The game made its debut on PC in October 2012, and was later released on Xbox 360 via Xbox Live, and for PS3 and Vita via the PS Store.

A 3DS release date is yet to be announced.
