Grand Theft Auto III Getting Mobile Versions, Pricey Action Figure

Rockstar Games revealed today that it would be honouring Grand Theft Auto III‘s 10th anniversary with a special edition. Later this year, it’s coming to an array of portable devices for Android, but fewer ones for iOS.

Grand Theft Auto III showed us the potential of open world games,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games in an official release. “It helped set the vision for the company, and we have been expanding on those possibilities with every game ever since.”

GTA III will be released on the iPad 2 and the iPhone 4S. That’s it. If you’ve got an iPhone 4, then it looks like you are out of luck.

It’s coming to more Android phones, such as Droid X2, HTC Evo 2, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Atrix and Samsung Galaxy S2. It’s also headed to Android tablets like Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad, Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.

The game’s anniversary doesn’t stop at smartphone ports. Rockstar is also releasing a limited-edition 1:6 scale figure of GTA III protagonist Claude. The figure comes with two sets of clothing, including his cargo pants and bomber jacket as well as his Liberty City prison uniform. Beside the clothes, it also has an array of weapons: a bat, knife, grenades, pistol, sniper rifle and assault rifle.

Priced at $US149.99, the figure is being produced by collectible figure maker Slideshow. Rockstar is also giving one away — more details in the link below.

If you are going to the New York Comic-Con, the smartphone version will be playable at Rockstar’s booth.
