Ever wanted to build an empire through gratuitous, retro-flavoured violence? Vblank Entertainment’s Shakedown: Hawaii is the ticket for that ride. The long-awaited sequel to Retro City Rampage finally has a release date. It’s out on May 7th for PS4, PC, PlayStation Vita, and Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo 3DS users can expect it to arrive later, but Shakedown: Hawaii looks like it will be worth the wait. As a parody of big businesses, Shakedown: Hawaii is about marketing spin, false advertising, and being a “legitimate” businessman. While this involves buying property, it also means wrecking shops for protection money, destroying existing properties in the name of rezoning, and much more.
Traverse the city with its parks and suburbs or head into the jungle to carry out your mission. Check out the gameplay overview trailer below. Alternatively, you can check out a trailer for “The Consultant” for a peek at some of the tasks you’ll be asked to complete.
