'Retro City Rampage' (Wii) Delayed, Also Coming to XBLA

Retro City Rampage is an over-the-top open-world crime game that combines everything you loved in classic games and mashes them up into a "toon town" of nostalgia and parody.

Canadian indie developer Brian Provinciano revealed that in order to be financial viable, Retro City Rampage needed to be multi-platform and has this decided to also bring the game to XBLA. The bad news is that Retro City Rampage is getting delayed until somewhere in 2011 but the extra time will also be used to add extra content, such as playable characters and missions, into both versions of the game. Retro City Rampage will be released first on XBLA as part of its summer of arcade lineup, and afterwards on WiiWare.

It's one half fast paced arcade game, the other half a hilarious story mode!

It's all the driving and shooting you'd expect and a whole lot more! With missions that twist pages straight from classic game experiences, you get to re-live and rewrite history in a way only a modern anti-hero could!

When it comes to enemies, weapons are only the beginning! Put on your boots and jump on their heads! Toss 'em around to knock the rest down! Become truly unstoppable with awesome power-ups!

Through its world, characters and missions, Retro City Rampage lampoons the entire 8-bit era --from its games to the TV, movies and pop culture!
