Rockstar Games announced that in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, they will be releasing a 10th Anniversary Edition of the game for iOS & Android devices. No price and no specific date other than this Fall has been announced thus far. They will also be releasing other merchandise as well, here’s the full announcement from their site:

“Building on the success of the groundbreaking Grand Theft Auto III in 2001, the release of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on October 29, 2002 pushed the open world game series deeper into popular culture with a vibrant over-the-top take on Miami, a stunning celebrity voice cast and a loving, satirical look at the cultural excesses of the ‘80s.

To celebrate the 10th anniversary, there will be a series of commemorative assets released, including never-before-seen artwork and a brand new anniversary trailer highlighting some of the most iconic scenes and music from the game.  In addition, a limited run of collectable promotional items will be made available for purchase through the Rockstar Warehouse, with select items also available via online giveaways.

In conjunction with the anniversary, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be releasing an Anniversary Edition of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for select iOS and Android devices later this fall. This upcoming version will bring the full experience to mobile devices, featuring native high-resolution graphics and several enhancements unique to the iOS and Android platforms. Stay tuned for more details in the weeks ahead including a list of compatible iOS and Android devices.”

Morning LOL – New Super Mario Bros. Wii Characters

I always wondered why they just didn’t put in Toad & Peach like in Super Maro Bros. 2, though I guess with Peach getting kidnapped that wouldn’t make much sense. Maybe Daisy could be either playable or kidnapped instead?
