Shakedown Hawaii is the follow up to Retro City Rampage. Not a sequel but a completely new open world game, this is one you need to keep an eye on. It’s due out later this year on PC, Nintendo Switch, the 3DS, the PS Vita, and the PS4. There’s no official release date yet, but here’s hoping it’s not too far off! My Switch needs this!
From the new official reveal and story details:
You play an aging CEO, stranded in a world he no longer understands, with a company that’s now a relic of the past.
Upon discovering that online shopping’s destroyed his retail margins, ride sharing killed his taxi business, and video rental stores… are no longer actually a thing… it becomes clear that keeping the company alive will require drastic measures. He’ll need to modernize the business! Unfortunately, the modernizations he chooses are exactly those comically egregious practices!
From the Boardroom to the Streets
Replacing the genre’s more commonly populated gangs and mobsters, are boardroom executives, formulating harebrained schemes to increase margins and boost profits.
Collect ’em All!
As things begin to turn the corner, our anti-hero sets his sights even higher. Perhaps it was his rival’s taunts, or maybe he attended one too many motivational self-help seminars, or it could just be his own insecurity and overcompensation complex. Whatever it was, he declares that saving the company is no longer enough. He’s going to own the ENTIRE island! He’ll destroy EVERY competitor! He’ll convince the world that online shopping’s a dying fad, taxis are here to stay, and dammit… get everyone renting VHS tapes again!
