Retro City Rampage Wii out Feb 28, includes prototype ROM

Feb 21 // Tony Ponce    @megaStryke

Steam version will also receive prototype via update

Retro City Rampage for WiiWare missed its January release window, but creator Brian Provinciano has set his foot down and stated that the game will finally arrive next week on February 28. RCR's entire development history has been a long string of delays, so that's not too surprising. It's just ironic that the Wii was one of the first announced platforms but will end up being the last to receive the open-world nostalgia bomb.

But Brian appreciates Wii owners' patience and has decided to make the wait worth their while. In addition to being $10 versus $15 on other platforms as well as compatibility with every single Wii controller configuration, RCR on WiiWare will also include "ROM City Rampage," the game's original prototype ROM before development shifted to from NES to PC. It's essentially Grand Theftendo minus the GTA3 references, and it's 100% NES hardware-accurate!

Those who own RCR on Steam will also have access to "ROM City Rampage," which will be available as a free update day and date with the WiiWare version. Sounds like a pretty cool gift! I'm looking forward to checking it out!
