This news coming somewhat as a surprise to me, and I'm sure many others. But no this isn't April Fool's, Nintendo have indeed just announced GTA: Chinatown Wars for the DS at this years E3 event. It's expected to be released this winter. Once again we'll see a GTA game taking place in Liberty City, though this one of course (presumably) focusing just on the Chinatown district.

From the press release:

"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," said 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."

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is an entirely original entry into the critically acclaimed Grand Theft Auto series, and brings a new level of interactivity to its sprawling open environments. With the use of the DS touch screen, players will navigate their way through the streets as they uncover the truth behind an epic tale of crime and corruption within the Triad crime syndicate, delivering the unprecedented amount of depth that has become a true trademark of the franchise.

Let's hope it improves upon GTA Advance!

This news post is being updated with more info as it becomes known.

I'm so lucky that I bought a DS Lite last year, will definitely be picking this up. Judging by the name, I wonder if it will be set in Liberty City or a new location. Just hope it won't be as suckish as normal DS games.

C'mon, again?! I don't think that they'll even need to change the map since it will probably be set in modern day Liberty City.

For a game map this small I don't really think they needed to design something new though.

It's pretty cool now that they're now starting on another portable console (Excluding GTA Advance). This, I supposedly hope will be more entertaining than the stories' series. I mean, being it on DS, it should be alot more fun, especially with the DS features. I believe this could bring GTA high again from GTA Advance.

Let's just see where it heads to...

I hope it has GTA IV gameplay, but I was hoping for another GTA on PS3/360 that would have airplanes and all that wonderful various amount of stuff like on GTA:SA.

Oh well. <_< Just hope it isn't a top-down GTA and that it isn't set in the GTA 3 Liberty City.

Oh and, Chinatown FTW. Seriously.

Eventually. Not much need for it yet because nothing is known except this press release. Also if it's going to be released this winter it means it's pretty much done, no time for wishes. Plus we have no idea of the scale of the game and what sort of things to expect.

We'll make a forum when there's a little more demand for it.

EDIT: never mind, I'll make one now.

I wasn't thinking outside-the-box. Like Chris and others said, they were surprised to see another GTA located in Liberty City and who would've thought a GTA would be on the DS?

Anyways, I wonder if you'll be able to fire via the touchscreen. :) That'll be sick.

Yes, I agree using R on peds would be better, but how about when doing drivebys, blind-firing, shooting vehicles and etc?

IMO, it would be new and unique and doing the items listed above using an analog is different and not the best but now imagine using the DS' control pad.

I personally would enjoy using the touchscreen to fire.

I don't know if I said this, but this is also good news to some of us because it's sort of like higher odds that we could get a GTA on Wii. Maybe, that is, if this actually succeeds and people like it.

^ And, if R* are more likely to make an 'experimental' (if you will) DS release, it shows promise for a PC version, which will definitely sell well.

I meant a PC version of IV, not CTW, probably my wording, but yeah. PC vers. of IV would sell better than CTW, IMO, so.... yeah... self explanatory....

Chinatown wars sounds good, my friend has a Ds lite and I use it sometimes..He uses an R4, which is basically an empty cartridge that allows you to store multiple games on one cartridge, use it to view photos, videos, listen to music etc. Like a little computer..

No, it's definitely not. I call total BS on that. Is there even a stable PS2 emulator out for the PC yet? The PSP can't emulate the last gen's hardware.

I think it's a bit stupid releasing this game for the DS, as it's a bit like a girl's type console, I can't see it selling much. They should have released it for PSP instead.

Males buy and play the DS, too. And females play GTA, also. Quit being a little sexist.

Furthermore, the whole point to the game is for the DS gameplay. That's why it's being developed.

But DS gameplay is usually crap..... I thought Chinatown Wars was a bad joke someone had made up on the net..... But it's something much worse.... They should spend less time making things i'm not going to buy and more on the decent games... I think Rockstar should get as far away from Nintendo as is humanly possible. Before they make a Wii version >.<

First off, just because you played some games you didn't like doesn't mean they all suck. Secondly, just because YOU don't like it doesn't make it a bad game. And finally, I'm quite wanting a Wii version. I'd like to see how they pull it off and how it turns out. I'd buy it, and I'd probably enjoy it, too. So long as Leeds stays the hell away from it. <3North.

Quite wanting a Wii version?! It's going to be like to walk stand on the board and move your arms about and look like a complete idiot and after about 5mins of playing your going to be as tired as balls and all the characters will have huge bobble heads an there won't be blood coming out of them it will just be flowers. O.k maybe not to those extremes but never mind. Usually NDS games aren't about gameplay it's about the technology. Sometimes the technology works with the gameplay sometimes it is a huge fail and has tried to over do itself, tripped up and landed in it's own arse. O.k if CW is a success I'll eat my hat and rethink some of my opinions but until then I am staying firmly with what I believe.

Yes, because everytime they release a new attachment EVERY game uses it. That's why we all use dance pads, light guns, and Power Gloves for ALL of our games, right?

And you'd walk with the joystick.... Like any other game with character movement....

First off, just because you played some games you didn't like doesn't mean they all suck. Secondly, just because YOU don't like it doesn't make it a bad game. And finally, I'm quite wanting a Wii version. I'd like to see how they pull it off and how it turns out. I'd buy it, and I'd probably enjoy it, too. So long as Leeds stays the hell away from it. <3North.

Quite wanting a Wii version?! It's going to be like to walk stand on the board and move your arms about and look like a complete idiot and after about 5mins of playing your going to be as tired as balls and all the characters will have huge bobble heads an there won't be blood coming out of them it will just be flowers. O.k maybe not to those extremes but never mind. Usually NDS games aren't about gameplay it's about the technology. Sometimes the technology works with the gameplay sometimes it is a huge fail and has tried to over do itself, tripped up and landed in it's own arse. O.k if CW is a success I'll eat my hat and rethink some of my opinions but until then I am staying firmly with what I believe.


Yes, because everytime they release a new attachment EVERY game uses it. That's why we all use dance pads, light guns, and Power Gloves for ALL of our games, right?

And you'd walk with the joystick.... Like any other game with character movement....

I just think a Wii version of GTA would have the gameplay totally watered down by the technology.


Just to shut you up, you could even this use this Posted Image

Happy now? GTA on the Wii would be tottally possible, sure it wouldn't have the fancy IV graphics but it could really inovate the series.

I think that if you did use a normal controller it would somewhat defeat the purpose of the Wii but you never know. And about the graphics.... Well.... Enough on the Wii anyways. (It's still a Chinatown Wars topic. Believe it or not.)
