Remember back at the start of July when developer Brian “Vblank” Provinciano announced that physical copies of Retro City Rampage and Shakedown Hawaii on Nintendo Wii would be available for purchase? It was awesome news, for sure, but the one caveat was that due to manufacturing limitations, the run of discs would be coming to European Wii owners and not those of us here in North America. Well, the time has come for another shot at physical copies of Shakedown Hawaii—on Wii U!
Shakedown: Hawaii’s Wii U physical edition arrives August 20th! But, that’s not all! It’s also coming to PlayStation 3 digitally with 3X Cross Buy (free to existing PS4/Vita owners)!

Starting August 20 at 10 AM PST, fans will be able to pick up a copy of Shakedown Hawaii in all its non-digital glory. The run is limited to 3,000 copies of each version. Yes, not only will there be a run of 3,000 standard copies of Shakedown Hawaii, but there will also be 3,000 copies of a special edition for an extra $5 that come with a digital copy of the soundtrack and a protective case/sleeve for the game box itself. What’s more, the game will also be available in the Wii U eShop on that day (and digitally on something called a “Play Station Three,” whatever that is).
Vblank notes that once these sell out, there will be no further printings; he was barely able to get this physical printing of Shakedown Hawaii on Wii U in the can, apparently, so get yourself a copy right away if you’re interested!
