We've waited years to play VBlank's Retro City Rampage, and our wait ends next week. The developer informed us tonight that the PS3, Vita, and PC versions ofRetro City Rampage will launch October 9 in North America.

Your $14.99 purchase gets you a copy of the game on both PlayStation platforms; the PC version retails for the same price, and will be available from Steam, GOG, or VBlank's own website (which dispenses both a DRM-free download and your choice of a Steam or GOG key).

The European Vita and PS3 release will also happen this month, developer Brian Provinciano told us. The WiiWare and XBLA versions are coming later in 2012.
