The amazing retro over-the-top open-world crime game is launching on May this year!

Good news for PS3 and soon (or already) Vita owners, RCR is also releasing on Sony devices. For those who don't know, this is a retro GTA clone, just like the first two games.

Sony has announced that the upcoming VBlank Entertainment game Retro City Rampage is coming to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

Let’s get right to it — Retro City Rampage is coming to PS3 and PS Vita! I couldn’t be more excited to finally share the news. For those not familiar with RCR, it’s 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. Steal cars, and then jump on pedestrians for big shiny coins. Collect power-ups and outrun the law while rampaging the city, shooting a light gun or swinging your bionic arm.

Fans of Grand Theft Auto will feel right at home with RCR, but the missions extend far beyond driving and shooting. They fuse classic gaming and modern mechanics to span virtually every genre, from stealth to platforming, adventure, rhythm and more—there are even underwater levels. What I’m most proud of is that everything flows together using the same mechanics and visuals. Even missions inspired by ’80s coin-op games seamlessly take place in the open-world.
This one was announced a few years ago, and it looks like it has been delayed a few times by now. Well, apparently the game is indeed launching on May this year, so seems we won't have to wait a lot.

Remember, this one is also coming to WiiWare, Xbox Live Arcade and Steam.

This game looks amazing, and if you haven't, check the new gameplay trailer below!
