Shakedown Hawaii Is Coming To PS5, And Has Crossbuy Over 4 Sony Consoles

The game will make use of the DualSense's unique features.


Shakedown Hawaii, the 16-bit styled throwback sequel to Retro City Rampage, is coming to PS5 with enhancements. This means that the game will be available across four different PlayStation systems--the PS3, PS4, PS5, and PS Vita.

Thanks to crossbuy, if you own the game on any previous system, you'll have immediate access to the PS5 version.

Developer VBlank Entertainment announced that the game will use the PS5 DualSense controller's adaptive triggers to give weapons "a more distinct feeling," and it'll use the controller's enhanced vibrations, too. This can be toggled off if you're not interested, though.

The trophy set on PS5 is also being expanded, and a Platinum trophy is being introduced for the first time. The PS5 trophies will be seperate from the other versions, so you can re-earn them if you'd like.

The PS5 version will also get all the updates that have been released for other platforms so far. It'll release digitally on December 15.

Shakedown Hawaii also came to Wii and Wii U, making it one of the final--or possibly the final--game released for these consoles, with Just Dance finally bowing out after Just Dance 2020.
