    New York, NY – December 15, 2008 - Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce the release date for Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the latest entry into the genre-defining Grand Theft Auto series. Developed by Rockstar Leeds, in conjunction with series creators Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be available for the Nintendo DS™ on March 17 and 20, 2009 in North America and Europe, respectively.

    “Rockstar Leeds have once again created a game that far exceeds our standard for deep and innovative entertainment,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We are incredibly excited to share this enormous and uncompromising Grand Theft Auto experience with DS fans.”

    Edge Magazine commented, “How does Rockstar follow Grand Theft Auto IV? By rebuilding Liberty City from the ground up on DS - and not compromising its vision one iota.”

    Nintendo Power added, “…it’s undeniable that Chinatown Wars is doing something no other DS game has come close to: creating that living, breathing world the Grand Theft Auto games are known for.”

    Nice, thanks for the heads-up, Hadrian.

    I bet Europeans are gonna be ecstatic when they hear they won't have to wait until the next Ice Age for the game to come out.

    Very cool. Been reading up on everything regarding this game, and I'm confident people are going to be hella impressed with it. The naysayers will be feasting on crow. I've also had an opportunity to see screenshots other than the ones from Nintendo Power, and the game does, indeed, look great. Which by the way, just finished reading the interview with Gordon Hall from my latest issue of NP, and he goes on and on about how this is by far the best game Leeds has worked on. Hall comes off as genuinely excited about the game.

    I'm really hyped for this one, didn't expect that much in the beginning, but after seeing some pics I just changed completely over this game.

    Its not surprising that the Official Nintendo Magazine doesn't know about this yet.
    They suck and are biased.
    If nintendo made this, they'd be all over it.

    Can't wait!

    The British one is in the dark over Nintendo's own stuff never mind much else.

    I don't think that's the official date...

    I was reading my EGM magazine, and it said the date was Winter 2009.

    My jaw dropped.

    No you see what I posted WAS the official announcement, otherwise I wouldn't have posted it. Also Rockstar have since said that the game won't make Winter 2009 and instead will be around Spring.

    Who the FUCK are you?

    You're just a random troll who floods the forums with bullshit.

    There's no way in hell they can not make it run on flashcarts.

    But if there is ever a slight chance, a way will be found to play it.
