A commercial for the next hand-held GTA is now airing in the U.S. The Chinatown Wars commercial is a mix of artwork with some actual in-game footage, and highlights the protagonist’s view on what is “the key to building an empire.” The ad also takes note of GameStop’s pre-order deal, which lets you start the game with ,000 and allows you immediate access to Ammunition.

Chinatown Wars will be released on March 17th, 2009, in the U.S. and on the 20th in the U.K. exclusively on the Nintendo DS. Watch the ad below:

That Pre-Order deal is a little bit rubbish (IMO)... Like couldn't that money just be unlocked via a cheat or something? Pretty lame Gamestop, Pretty lame... Though I wasn't expecting anything less from the evil corporate giant ;) :P

Good advert though :)

Woah from what I saw the game looks really nice, smooth and fast. I wanna see more gameplay videos but the trailer was nice.

Any idea when this will be out in Australia ?

As usual we will probably be screwed over with release dates :(

March 20th is for Australia and pretty much every other country too I believe.

I can't remember but I think that the DS links your stats to the Social Club so if you're cheating, WE THEY WILL KNOW. It's ok if you don't want to be flagged as a cheater.

I think it's a nice incentive to buy the game from them. Evil corporate giant? You make it seem like they're Walmart or something.

I'm interested in it, myself. We're strapped for cash right now.

I liked the gameplay they showed but the cutscenes in the commercial were kind of weird. =P
