Nostalgia trips are awesome.
Retro City Rampage is an old-school blast from the past that's coming to both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. To learn more about this lighthearted romp, check out the PlayStation Blog .
There will be two screen modes (standard for the Vita and a 16:9 widescreen image for the PS3) and unsurprisingly, we'll be using the Vita's touchscreen capabilities. As developer Brian Provinciano says, "RCR is a love letter to the days of the d-pad," but that doesn't mean the touchscreen has to be ignored; such technology allows the menus and minigames to be quite fluid. Of course, you can still use the buttons if you so choose.
There's also the great news that the game supports continuous play between the PS3 and Vita, which means you can continue your glorious bashing campaign if you have to leave your living room. Not only are the save files transferable, the two versions "share a single set of scoreboards." There are more than a few reasons to get involved in what is obviously a labor of love, and that goes triple if you remember the days when video games actually looked like this.
Yeah, it wasn't as long ago as you might think.
