GTA: Chinatown Wars- new details

Do want

Do want

Nintendo announced GTA:Chinatown Wars to a rather indifferent audience at E3 this year.

“But it’s GTA…on DS!” I hear you cry.
“What’s not to like?!”

See, the thing is, when Nintendo announced the game, that’s exactly what they did.
They did no more than merely acknowledge its existence.

We had no idea how the game was going to play, look or function. All we knew that it was a Grand Theft Auto game…on the DS…presumably set in ‘Chinatown’.

But for all those salivating for some information on Rockstar‘s latest, look no further.

As most had second guessed, the game takes place from an isometric view, much like The Sims.
So while not fully 3D, the ‘top down’ view still allows for 3D detail. 3D Cel Shaded detail that is.
Yep, that’s right, a cel shaded GTA game.

The game will stick to the fashion of every GTA game ever, and remain a free-roaming crime sim.
However, the missions, and the entire game itself, are more suited to handheld play, with missions being shorter and more streamlined.

There will be Touch Screen controls, but aiming will be controlled by the D-Pad, with ‘R’ taking care of the targeting.

The game will feature all the things you’ve come to expect from a GTA game, like a free roaming city, cops, a wanted level system, 24 hour clock, weather effects and all the rest.

The game also supports the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for uploading stats.
Just what exactly these stats are remains to be seen, but rest assured, when we know, you’ll know.
