Shakedown: Hawaii is coming to the Nintendo Switch, but if you are looking to scratch your GTA-open world style gaming with a retro twist, VBlank has something to help tide you over: Retro City Rampage DX!

Retro City Rampage DX is on a multitude of systems including the 3DS, but will now be coming to the Nintendo Switch. From VBlanks website:

SURPRISE! ‘Retro City Rampage DX’ is coming to the Nintendo Switch eShop! This marks the award winning send-up’s 14th(?!) platform to officially launch (I think?!).

 

Although ‘Shakedown: Hawaii’ is still on the way, it’s not quite finished yet. In the meantime, you can get your Nintendo Switch open world fix, with Retro City Rampage DX!

 

Like each port before it, it contains little tweaks that polish the game even further (I just can’t help myself!). From little things like the slightly more stylish score display, to improved enemy stomp and swimming controls, to improved lock-on targeting, and mission difficulty tweaks. If you couldn’t beat Death Cam VHS before, you’ll have a leg up on Switch!

 

As for Shakedown’s release, don’t worry! This surprise port hasn’t lead to any sort of delays with that. If anything, this’ll ensure that once ready, Shakedown gets through Nintendo Switch certification quickly, since our road’s been paved by RCR:DX.

 

The release date for RCR:DX on Switch is still being locked down. We’re aiming for next week, but if it doesn’t quite make that, hopefully it’ll land the week after.

Check out the teaser trailer below!
