Retro City Rampage DX includes some major tweaks to missions, weapons, vehicles, challenges, tutorials, checkpoints – just about every other aspect of the game has been modified toward providing a better overall experience. Retro City Rampage DX also features a slightly zoomed-in viewpoint on the 3DS, along with the most updated version of the game found on PC.

Retro City Rampage (3DS)

Show full PR text
Digital distribution has brought us games which can grow and evolve long past launch. Over the past year, I've continued to support Retro City Rampage, the PC version receiving its 16th
update just a couple of weeks ago. All of these improvements and additions paved the way for the greatly enhanced Retro City Rampage: DX. RCR:DX will be launching this month on Nintendo 3DS for $9.99. Not only is it the best version yet, it's $5 less than the console original!

Retro City Rampage has had a great year, picking up momentum and selling substantially more units in 2013 than 2012. Less than a year ago it was announced that it had broken 100K units sold, and now that's more than doubled to a quarter million units sold. If you add the PlayStation Plus downloads, it brings that number up to half a million units! Despite the rocky launch, your continued coverage and word of mouth spread, helping the fans eventually find it. It's incredibly exciting to know that so many people have enjoyed the game.
