Chinatown Wars is now available on the App Store for $9.99. Although it missed its 2009 release target by a few weeks, we’re too busy building up our gang to argue about it now. We’ll have our review for you soon.
Is it too late for April Fool’s? After a Touch Arcade forum poster using the name “Gameloft” pretended to announce a GTA: Chinatown Wars port, we’re a bit skeptical when it comes to “Chinatown Wars coming to the iPhone” announcements. But it seems now that Kotaku has confirmed the real deal from Rockstar’s President, Sam Houser.
Kotaku reports that Sam Houser told them in an interview, “Chinatown Wars is a perfect match for the iPhone and iPod touch. We are very excited to bring this incredibly ambitious version of Liberty City, with this level of detail and immersive gameplay on Apple’s new gaming platforms.”
Well, there you have it. Yet another best-selling franchise finds its home on the iPhone. While we’re looking forward to playing Chinatown Wars on the iPhone ourselves, we have to wonder: will Apple force Rockstar to tone down the naughty content?
