E3 08: New handheld GTA to be subtitled Chinatown Wars

Rockstar Leeds and North developing GTA for DS

During Nintendo’s E3 press conference yesterday, the format-holder revealed that a brand new GTA game is heading for the DS.

Called GTA: Chinatown Wars, the game was described as being developed with a ‘brand new engine’ and set in the modern day Liberty City seen in GTAIV.

The game is being developed by Rockstar Leeds in conjunction with series creators Rockstar North.

“This is a game that will deliver a rich, fast-paced and intense ‘Grand Theft Auto’ experience that will be truly unique to Nintendo’s handheld platform,” commented Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games.

“Rockstar Leeds, along with the team at Rockstar North, has built upon a decade of progressive design on Grand Theft Auto, and has created something fundamentally fresh and immersive.”
