Shakedown Hawaii is coming to Nintendo Switch first

Sequel to Retro city Rampage

Shakedown Hawaii, the new game from the developer of Retro City Rampage, is coming to Nintendo Switch in April.

The game received a new trailer shown during Nintendo’s indie showcase this morning. It’s a 16-bit run-and-gun action game with an aesthetic that will be familiar to fans of Vblank Entertainment’s earlier title. It takes place 30 years later and features an open world full of things just waiting to be blown up.

The follow-up to Retro City Rampage comes nearly five years after the game first launched on Windows PC; it later hit Nintendo 3DS and WiiWare, among other platforms.

First revealed in November 2015, Shakedown Hawaii will launch as a timed Switch exclusive. It’s among the robust indie lineup that Nintendo is building for the hybrid system, which hits retail on March 3. Other independent games coming to Switch include Stardew Valleywith the console debut of the game’s multiplayer mode — as well as the freshly announced SteamWorld Dig 2.

When the Switch launches March 3, a day-one patch will be available to download so that fans can access the eShop, where all of these games will be up for purchase.
