Max Payne is coming to mobile devices, with HD textures, customizable controls, wired controller support, and Rockstar Social Club features.

Today's release announcement for Max Payne 3 carried another little nugget of info inside of it: the original Max Payne will be re-released on mobile platforms. Rockstar announced that the mobile version will be redressed in higher resolution, and sport many PC features.

According to the announcement, Max Payne's mobile outing will feature HD textures, customizable controls with wired controller support, and connectivity to the Rockstar Games Social Club. The press release doesn't mention specific mobile platforms, but Android and/or iOS seem like likely picks.

Max Payne 3 (aka Max Payne Gets Old) is coming in March. We'll probably see the mobile Max Payne hitting sometime near that window, but no release details have been disclosed so far.

      It would be really cool if they ported it to the Vita. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

        That would seem like the best choice; I'd hate to see Max Payne on an iPhone to be honest.

        Yeah, I'm hoping for a Vita port as well. If GTA:Chinatown made its way to PSP, I wouldn't be surprised if this made its way to Vita.
