Rockstar Bringing Vice City Back for Mobile Devices

[drop2]Rockstar might be fully into their drawn out tease process for Grand Theft Auto V but that hasn’t stopped them from remembering one of the fan’s favourite instalments in the series has a birthday coming up. In a few days, Vice City turns 10 and Rockstar is throwing it a little party.

They’re releasing an anniversary edition of the game to mobile devices later this “fall” which will include “native, high resolution graphics” and enhancements especially for iOS and Android devices. They’re not listing the devices it’s coming to but hopefully the Nexus 7 is in there, with its simple gamepad support and we’d be amazed if it wasn’t the usual list of more recent Android devices and iOS handsets after the iPhone 4.


They’re also going to be dropping some previously unreleased artwork as part of the anniversary celebrations and they’re cutting together a new trailer featuring some of the iconic scenes and music from the game – which will hopefully all still be intact for the mobile release.

Finally, there will be some limited merchandise available through their Rockstar Warehouse online store but I suspect this will be snapped up very quickly.

  1. Really hope this comes to VITA

  2. GTA on a touch screen?

    i’ll pass thanks, even on the analog nub on the psp, GTA was too fiddly, no way i’d enjoy it on a touch screen.

  3. I personally don’t have much issue with the iPad controls for GTA3 so I will be snapping this up instantly. Brilliant news!!

  4. Vita or nothing.

  5. Vita is need of games so this should be released on Vita too.
