Shakedown Hawaii

At E3, Nintendo World Report recorded some footage of Shakedown: Hawaii running on Switch’s screen. View the video below.

Shakedown: Hawaii is planned for Switch, but we also can’t forget about the 3DS version. Just recently, Vblank Entertainment posted a short clip of a new zoomed out camera option on the handheld, which you can view below. The studio recommends using it only with XL systems.

Vblank Entertainment prepared a new Shakedown: Hawaii video showing off the game’s color options. Several choices will be included, such as the one pictured above. The full set can be seen in the video below.

Retro City Rampage featured over 40 Arcade Challenges that players could tackle. In the spiritual successor Shakedown: Hawaii, Vblank Entertainment is bringing the idea back.

Vblank posted a brief teaser this weekend showing one of these challenges in action. Below, you can get a look at Pedestrian Target Practice, which has you mowing down civilians.

Shakedown Hawaii got a lot of attention at the Switch Nindies event last week, but what perhaps some people don’t know is that there is a 3DS version of the game as well which has been in the works for a while. The 3DS version wasn’t scrapped in favor of the Switch version – it’s still being worked on by developer Vblank Entertainment. NintendoLife have reached out to them and got an update on the 3DS version.

First of all, the 3DS version is still slated to be released this year. While a bit more vague than the Switch version’s “Q2 2017”, it’s still reassuring. Unlike some recent indie games which have been exclusive to the New Nintendo 3DS, Shakedown Hawaii will work on all 3DS models – and the developers say they are working hard to ensure a steady 60 FPS even on older models. New Nintendo 3DS owners still get some additional benefits though as the C-Stick will be fully compatible with Shakedown Hawaii.


Shakedown Hawaii is launching soon, as it’s due out in April. Now only that – it’s also going to be on Switch first. The news was just shared during the Nindies Showcase presentation.

Vblank Entertainment created a new trailer for Shakedown: Hawaii, a follow-up to the indie game Retro City Rampage scheduled for 2017. Watch it below.
