Rockstar Games is announcing the availability of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for Android and Amazon Kindle Fire as well as an update to the iOS version.
Chinatown Wars will work across a number of supported Android phones, tablets, and other devices, such as the Google Nexus Player and Amazon Fire TV. Yes - that means you can finally enjoy Chinatown Wars on the big screen if you happen to own a compatible device.
All versions of Chinatown Wars features new, highly customizable touchscreen controls, support for physical controllers, and high-resolution widescreen display on supported devices. Retina Display is also finally supported in the latest update.
I thoroughly enjoyed Chinatown Wars back when it released on the Nintendo DS back in 2009. It brings the modern-day Grand Theft Auto experience to the classic top-down feel of the original games, and it's a game I have no problem recommending, especially now that you can play it on supported Android TV devices, like the Fire TV.

Christ, how long has that been in the pipeline!
Awesome! This was one of my favourite DS titles.
Chinatown Wars was a great little throwback to the original GTAs. I spent so much time in those games as a young PC player. When they updated it in CW, it really struck the nostalgia nerve for me.
I wonder how well the touch features translate in the Android environment. I remember the touch integration of the DS version to be pretty extensive ie. guiding blowtorches, dragging drugs and money into bags, and SCRATCH TICKETS!!!
