As difficult as it is to believe, it’s been 10 years since Grand Theft Auto III was unleashed upon an unsuspecting gaming public. The title went on to become the top selling video game of 2001, garnering critical praise and later spawning a legion of imitators attempting to emulate the open world variety of gameplay. To commemorate its 10th anniversary, Rockstar Games will be releasing Grand Theft Auto III to the following Apple iOS and Android devices later this fall:
Apple iOS Devices: iPad 2, iPhone 4S
Android Phones: Droid X2, HTC Evo 2, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Atrix, Samsung Galaxy S2
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Additionally, Rockstar is partnering with Sideshow Collectibles on a limited edition action figure of lead character Claude. The fully articulated 12-inch figure is attired in his original outfit of bomber jacket and cargo pants. Also included are a Liberty City Prison-issued jumpsuit, as well as an arsenal of weapons from GTA III, including bat, knife, grenades, pistol and various rifles. The Claude action figure is available for pre-order now through the Rockstar Warehouse.
