Shakedown: Hawaii is quite the trip. The game sits somewhere between the old, with its retro style and top down gameplay, and the new, with its tongue-in-cheek satirizing of current media trends like subscription services and microtransactions. The same can be said of the platforms the game released on as well. It came out on the PS4, Switch, and PC (as an exclusive to the new Epic Games Store, no less), but also the Vita, a handheld that has largely been retired. It looks like it’ll also be coming to another (nearly retired) handheld with an upcoming 3DS version soon.
The game has been said to be coming to the 3DS since its inception, but we haven’t heard a lot about it until now. A tweet from vBlank Entertainment shows the game running on a 3DS, along with the message that they will be submitting it for approval this week. That means the game will probably be coming out there fairly soon. So move over, Persona Q2, it looks like the 3DS will get a much more violent swansong instead.
Shakedown: Hawaii is available now for PlayStation 4, Switch, PC, and Vita. It is scheduled to come out for the 3DS soon. Check out our interview with the creator to get an insight into the game’s creation.
