Retro City Rampage: Grand Theft Auto Goes 8-Bit

Posted by Earnest "Nex" Cavalli on Wed, Sep 29, 2010 at 10:13 AM

There's not much known about Retro City Rampage — it's not even entirely clear what platforms it will be appearing on in addition to WiiWare — but as you can see from the above footage, the game is a spoof of classic 8-bit gaming conventions set in a world stylistically similar to the first two Grand Theft Auto games.

I'll be straight with you, the only reason this is getting play on Blogtown is because that radioactive plumber gag totally got me. Let's just hope RCR has more than just the one clever joke to hang its hat on when it reaches retail space in December.
