The lights are on
Developer Brian Provinciano dropped the news that his love letter to classic gaming is coming to Sony's systems today on the PlayStation Blog.
Provinciano, A.K.A Vblank Entertainment, can't seem to say enough nice things about Sony. "The PS Vita has been a dream to develop for as well," he says. "I’ve developed for every console and handheld from the past decade, and the PS Vita’s development system is the best I’ve ever used. Sony’s simply gotten everything right, from the hardware to the tools and support. With such a great development system, teams are able to focus entirely on making the best possible game, and I can’t wait to see what’s to come from other developers in the future."
He also seems to confirm some kind of cloud save connection for people who have both the PS3 and Vita game: "With the ability to bring RCR to both the PS3 and PS Vita, you’ll be able to play the full game anywhere you go with the best possible visuals."
In addition to Sony consoles, Retro City Rampage will appear on Xbox 360, Wii, and PC. The official game site currently estimates a May 2012 release, and PC players can pre-order the game for $14.99. Read up on our impressions of the game from last year's PAX Prime.
