    In 2002, game developer Brian Provinciano began work on NES development tools and quickly started to recreate GTA III for the 8-bit NES. The game was to be called Grandtheftendo, and was actually starting to look very interesting before development suddenly stopped. Many have speculated what became of the project and few seem to know that it was reborn as Retro City Rampage.

    Retro City Rampage features "over 50 story missions, over 30 arcade challenges, over 25 weapons and power-ups, over 40 vehicles, a massive interactive open-world to explore with over 70 interiors, over 100 character customizations." The game is slated to be released for the PSN, Xbox Live Arcade, on Wii-ware, and finally through Steam.

    Follow the development blog and get more information about this project via the links below. Do yourself a favor and search for the original Grandtheftendo homepage using an Internet way-back-machine.

    Grand Theft Endo?
    Will the police actually enforce that?

    :P

    In all seriousness, this sounds rather awesome.
