Rockstar Games is bringing the game that redefined sandbox-style action to an Android handset near you, and no, this ain’t no Chinatown Wars. We’re talking the first Grand Theft Auto game to make the jump to full 3D now making the jump to mobile devices. That’s right, this fall Grand Theft Auto III drops on Android. With hardware that puts the consoles the game first launched on to shame (imagine that, something as powerful as a PS2 now fits in your pocket), we don’t expect Rockstar to skimp here. The only real drawback is that the game will only be compatible with select devices (the Droid X2, HTC Evo 2, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Atrix, and Samsung Galaxy S2)
A specific release date and pricing has not been mentioned, but we’d expect this one to err on the pricier side in terms of mobile games. With fall now in full swing, it should be a matter of weeks before we are racing around city street with total disregard for the welfare of the general public.
