We have been anxiously awaiting more info on Shakedown: Hawaii ever since we checked it out at PSX last year, and today, our patience has been rewarded! Today, VBlank Entertainment released a full reveal trailer for Shakedown: Hawaii! Check it out!
Shakedown: Hawaii is a parody of mega corporations, white collar crimes, and absolutely horrible business practices. You play an aging CEO, stranded in a world he no longer understands, with a company that’s now a relic of the past. Upon discovering that online shopping’s destroyed his retail margins, ride sharing killed his taxi business, and video rental stores… are no longer actually a thing… it becomes clear that keeping the company alive will require drastic measures. He’ll need to modernize the business! Unfortunately, the modernizations he chooses are exactly those comically egregious practices!
Replacing the genre’s more commonly populated gangs and mobsters, are boardroom executives, formulating harebrained schemes to increase margins and boost profits. Through story missions, small jobs and your own acquisitions, you’ll gain ownership of properties and businesses. All money from these missions, and money earned from shaking down other businesses, will help you gain more property and expand your empire. Now don’t worry – you will still see your fair share of carjacking, combat and shootouts you’d expect from the genre. It will just come around as missions unravel. Of course, you will be there every step of the way as the CEO strives to take over the entire island!

There’s no release date just yet, but Shakedown: Hawaii will be launching on Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, PS4, PS Vita and PC/Steam. We will bring you more news as it becomes available. In the meantime, check out our interview at PSX last year!
