Rockstar has just announced that, following the success of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will be up for sale on the App Store and Google Play marketplaces starting later this fall. A precise release date was not announced.
That’s right, you’ll be able to tool around in this over-the-top take on 1980s Miami near the 10 year anniversary of the original game’s launch. GTA: Vice City launched on October 29th, 2002. If that doesn’t make you feel old, I’m not sure what will.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is one of my favorite entries in the entire franchise. It’s not the storyline, the locale, the characters or the gameplay that make Vice City so special to me. Instead, it’s the era of the game and the soundtrack that make it so awesome. In fact, out of all games with licensed soundtracks, I’d argue that the one for Vice City stands tall among the best.
No price point was announced for the mobile version of Vice City, but, if we go off of what GTA III launched at, the game will sell for $4.99.
While not announced in the post by Rockstar Games, the iOS versions of Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars are both currently selling for just $0.99. At the time of drafting this post, the Google Play versions of both games remain at their full price.
