The port will include all the features of the original game, including the open world and all of the game modes. The developer wrote, "[this port] proudly demonstrates once again that RCR isn't yet-another-retro-styled game, but something that could've actually been released in 1989."

Vblank has brought the game to numerous different consoles and platforms. So far, you can play Retro City Rampage on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Vita, Wii, 3DS, Xbox 360, and PC. Vblank also created a prototype Nintendo Entertainment System port of the game.
