Retro City Rampage is coming to the PS Vita and PS3 SOny and indie developer Brian Provinciano have revealed.

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," Provinciano wrote on the PS EU blog. "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."

The top-down game features 8-bit-inspired visuals and has an over-arching GTA-type system of vehicles.

"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," Provinciano explained.

Retro City Rampage currently hs no release date, but is also headed to Steam, Xbox Live and WiiWare. Check out the game in action below:
