Milanoir, 1970s-Style Italian Crime Thriller Launches For PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch

Italo Games and Good Sheperd Entertainment announced that Milanoir is currently available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC. The hand-animated action game is like a cross between Retro City Rampage and Hotline Miami. This is probably one of the few times where you’re so excited you needed a Kleenex box at the computer, and it didn’t involve websites that required you to go into the confession box after Mass.

Milanoir is a tale about revenge, betrayal, and a lot of crime… lots of crime. Plenty of blood, too. Also, some boobs. And plenty of explosions… we can’t forget about the explosions… but not the kind that require Kleenex.

The game is currently available on the PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop and on Steam for PC for $12.99. It will also launch on Xbox One starting June 8th on the Xbox Store.

Milanoir is inspired by the classic crime thrillers from the 1970s. The bootlegg films from Italy that were usually based on popular American films during that era. The publisher even put together a live-action launch trailer just to really set the mood… the sort of thing you would expect from Devolver Digital. Check it out below.

You take on the role of Piero, a gangster who was framed for a crime he didn’t commit. After battling his way through prison, Piero decides to hunt down the man who framed him and the men who helped the backstabber.

You’ll have to venture through the city, partaking in stealth elements, fisticuffs and shootouts throughout a 1970’s themed Italy. There are chase scenes, shootouts, helicopter battles, and spectacular car crashes. Additionally, you’ll be able to team up with a buddy in local co-op if that’s what you dig.

If this were a film a bunch of hipster critics from San Francisco would be tripping over themselves with soy latte spilling out of their mouths as they type furiously away on their vintage wireless keyboards for their portable Macs about how “toxic” the “masculinity” is in Milanoir.

That alone should let you know that it’s probably a good game.

You can pick up a digital copy of Milanoir from the:
PlayStation Store

Nintendo eShop
