Retro City Rampage is getting a surprise release very soon on Switch


Possibly next week

Retro City Rampage, which has released on nearly everything under the sun, including the Wii U when the creator said it would probably be a loss, is coming to Switch. VblankEntertainment announced that the DX version, which debuted with the 3DS, should arrive on the Switch eShop as soon as "next week."

The details are still being worked out, and it'll possibly launch "the week after" if issues arise, but it seems like it's basically done. New tweaks include a "slightly more stylish score display," improved controls/lock-on, and alterations to the game's difficulty.

I'm not sure if I need to buy it yet again, but I'll be there for Shakedown Hawaii.
