After what feels like an eternity, one-man developer Brian Provinciano has confirmed that Retro City Rampage will hijack the European PlayStation Network next week. That’s the 16th January if you want to mark your calendars. Go on, we’ll wait.

The game boasts an additional month of development on top of the North American release, resulting in a slew of gameplay tweaks, including improved checkpoints and overhauled missions. These upgrades will be applied to the original version via a patch.

There’s no word on a price for the European release, but just like overseas, buying the title once will unlock it on both the PlayStation 3 and Vita. How could you possibly resist?
