Vblank Entertainment’s love letter to 8-bit-era gaming, Retro City Rampage, will be coming to WiiWare on February 28th, 2013.  The game was previously released on Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam to luke-warm reception.


Retro City Rampage is mainly an isometric open-world game ala Grand Theft Auto 1 and 2, but also features gameplay that are reminiscent of other old-school classics.


Retro City Rampage will be for sale on WiiWare for 1000 points and will include its prototype, ROM City Rampage.  No word on if the title will also be available on WiiU or 3DS eShop.


When asked about the possibility of Retro City Rampage making its way to the Wii U or 3DS. A representative for Vblank Entertainment had this to say.

I’m very burnt out from porting so it’s just WiiWare.
