Retro City Rampage didn’t have the smoothest of launches when it was released for the PC, PS3, Vita, and Xbox 360 in 2012. A lot of people loved the game’s “GTA-meets-NES” look, but the reviews were less than kind (including this one by yours truly). However, developer Brian Provinciano has been busy improving the game over the last year (the PC version has received 16 updates since its release) and he’s finally ready to release the ultimate version of the game for the 3DS this month.
Known as Retro City Rampage: DX, this new version of the game has been tweaked and teased to bring out the best of the RCR experience. In addition to all the enhancements found in the PC version, RCR:DX will include a variety of new content and every mission has been optimized and edited. This includes rebalancing to make the game less difficult and a tutorial/tip system to help with some of themore extreme missions. Additional changes have been delivered to every part of the game including the visuals, vehicles, weapons, checkpoints, and Challenges.
Best of all, Retro City Rampage: DX has been priced at $9.99, which is 33% lower than the PC/console edition’s $14.99 price tag.
