Another look at Retro City Rampage’s sales

Vblank Entertainment added a new post to its site today that examines the sales of Retro City Rampage.

While Wii makes up a tiny fraction of the game’s sales, the 3DS version appears to have done quite well. Vblank says this edition “has the healthiest tail of all platforms.” Retro City Rampage continues to move units on 3DS despite never having received a price drop.

Here are Vblank’s full comments about the title’s sales on 3DS:

Nintendo 3DS has the healthiest tail of all platforms. Released nearly 10 months ago, it has never been discounted and still boasts a strong weekly tail. It was a great fit for the platform and market and received great promotion from Nintendo at launch. RCR released on 3DS 15 months later, but had it been released simultaneously with the others it’s possible that it could be the best selling out of all eight platforms. Again, this would vary widely on the type of game, but RCR was a perfect match for 3DS.

Why Retro City Rampage DX won’t be coming to Wii U

Retro City Rampage developer Brian Provinciano recently posted an explanation for why Vblank has no intention of porting their game to the Wii U. The many reasons for why include the cost of developing a version that would be near-identical to the one already available on WiiWare, the unprofitability of the WiiWare version and the fact that no other ports are planned. I’m sure this is disappointing news for some, but the game is still available on the 3DS and WiiWare, including all the content from the new “DX” update.

Retro City Rampage to be updated with “DX” content on WiiWare next week

The WiiWare version of Retro City Rampage will soon be updated with “DX” content. All missions have been tweaked, which extends to vehicles, weapons, challenges, visual effects, visual enhancements, checkpoints, difficulty, and challenges. Enhancements have been made to the core gameplay as well as smaller elements such as parking garages and waypoints.

Once the “DX” content is released, Retro City Rampage on WiiWare will be in line with the other versions of the game – mostly anyway. Only HD video filters and zoom modes will be missing. The Wii Remote, Classic Controller and GameCube Controller will all be supported, and there’s an optional “shake” gesture exclusive to the Wii Remote.

Retro City Rampage has also been rated in Australia in New Zealand, so the game should be out in these territories soon. Meanwhile, look forward to the “DX” update in other regions on November 13.
