Grand Theft Auto DS Screenshots: Drug Dealing, Carnage, Hotwiring Cars and Tattoo Inking

The first digital screenshots of Rockstar Leed's Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars have debuted via Edge, showing off numerous aspects of the first GTA on Nintendo DS.

The screenshots include images of hotwiring a car with a screwdriver, tattoo inking and drug dealing, along with the series' standard predilection towards chaos. The game is slated to hit retailers by January 31, 2009. nope

In addition, Rockstar revealed several new mini-games, such as one that has players aiming a gas pump with the stylus to bottle and make a Molotov cocktail. Another will see players punching out the rear window of a car that's rapidly sinking in water.

"Nintendo wanted us to make GTA...they didn't want us to make a GTA for kids," Rockstar creative VP Dan Houser explained earlier this year. "[Grand Theft Auto] can't be softened to make it family-friendly--that's not the game we're making. We've never not done well by sticking to our guns."
