Rockstar Games has announced that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Beaterator will be making its way to the iPhone and iPod touch.
Founder of Rockstar Games, Sam Houser said, “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.”
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is currently available for the Nintendo DS and is also coming this spring for the PlayStation Portable system.
The game follows the story of Huang Lee, a young Triad who travels to Liberty City after the mysterious death of his father. Players will navigate their way through the streets as they uncover the truth behind an epic tale of crime and corruption within the Triad crime syndicate, delivering the unprecedented amount of depth that has become a true trademark of the Grand Theft Auto franchise.
Rockstar’s Beaterator is a portable music-making application that allows people of all musical backgrounds and ability to create world-class beats and songs. Previously announced for the PlayStation Portable system, Beaterator features thousands of loops and sounds made by both Timbaland and Rockstar, and puts the power to make professional-level music at your fingertips in a format that’s portable, accessible and fun.
“The simple, pick-up-and-play nature of Beaterator lends itself so well to the Apple platforms. We are happy to deliver an application that allows for such unprecedented sharing and ease-of-use,” says Houser.
