Retro City Rampage MS-DOS Floppy and Boxed Floppy Set Now Available to Pre-Order

We previously reported on how crazy VBlank Entertainment and creator Brian Provinciano are by creating a legitimate MS-DOS version of Retro City Rampage.

Now, pre-orders for an actual 3.5-inch floppy disc version of Retro City Rampage 486 are now available. To be clear – the MS-DOS version of the game has been made available for free, as an update, to all owners of the original on PC, Mac, and Linux.

There’s even a prototype for both the Nintendo Entertainment System and Windows 3.1 version available! Now, onto the physical versions:

    This will make a lot of collectors happy. Not me, oldest I got was Windows 98.

    Dev really loved his game, huh. I’m not complaining, though! This is actually pretty cool.
