GTA: San Andreas Coming to Mobile
Read Full Story
Although a touchscreen device isn't exactly the ideal platform to play them on, previous mobile rereleases of Rockstar's long-running Grand Theft Auto series have apparently proved popular for the company to keep porting them.
The latest to be announced is the big one: the last game in the series on PlayStation 2, and, prior to Grand Theft Auto V, one of the biggest, most sprawling open-world adventures there was.
San Andreas follows the misadventures of young gangster CJ as he works his way out of the hood and seeks his fortune in the state of San Andreas. The game features three cities -- Los Santos, Las Venturas and San Fierro -- and the intervening countryside, though the map is completely different to Grand Theft Auto V's take on San Andreas. It features the most in-depth character customization of all Grand Theft Auto games, with stats that improve as you use them and a character whose body shape changes according to how much he physically exerts himself or overindulges on Cluckin' Bell fast food.
