Paris– Barely 24 hours after launch, Gangstar: Miami Vindication, the latest title published by Gameloft, has climbed to the top position on the App Store sales chart and is ranked the #1 best-selling* game in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Mexico and  most European countries.

"Gangstar is our latest original IP creation. The success of both Gangstar: West Coast Hustle, launched one year ago, and our latest title, Gangstar: Miami Vindication, makes this franchise a new strong brand in our portfolio," declared Gonzague de Vallois, Senior Vice President, Publishing, at Gameloft.

Gameloft has developed and marketed over 100 games since the App Store was launched in July 2008, with a record 20 million paid downloads to date.
