Grand Theft Auto: ChinaTown Wars

Fancy yourself as a bit of a drug dealer do ya? No of course you don’t, you’re a DS gamer after all! Well just pretend you are delivering Christmas presents rather than narcotics and you’ll be fine.

Following his father’s murder, Huang Lee has a simple mission: deliver an ancient sword to his Uncle Kenny to ensure his family retains control of the Triad gangs of Liberty City. Huang is a spoiled rich kid who expects everything to run smoothly, but his trip does not go exactly as planned. After being robbed and left to die, he will search for honor, riches and revenge in the most dangerous and morally bankrupt city in the world.

As you can see from the video below Chinatown Wars is looking set to be one of the best looking games to date on the DS. Rockstar seem to be pushing the humble DS hardware to its very limits. It’s difficult to say if a violent game based around the subject of drug dealing will be a good fit for the Nintendo crowd, but Rockstar are obviously confident that there will be a audience ready to snap this up when it comes out next week.


Grand Theft Auto: ChinaTown Wars will be out in the shops next Tuesday for North America and next Friday in Europe. Do let us know in the comments box below if you intend to pick it up after watching the trailer.
