In the summertime of 2008 the annual E3 games show was held. This show proved to be one of the least interesting in years. No new consoles were announced nor were any major new games announced from the well known franchises.
Specifically Nintendo’s presentation lacked anything to create gamers excited. Their finest effort included Wii Music, that has since been released with poor sales and unfavourable reviews. gta 5 download The only real item that actually caused excitement was the brief but fairly shocking announcement that GTA: Chinatown Wars will be released on the DS.
The announcement really came as a shock since GTA is best known for its adult content as the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DSi console are known for their family friendly games.
Fans of the series feared that GTA: Chinatown Wars DS would have its content toned down to fit in better with the sort of game typically on the console. GTA developers Rockstar have stated that they’d not be comfortable achieving this and that Nintendo never asked them to tone the information down. Toning the information right down to anything that would make the game ideal for a good 12+ age rating could leave almost no content in GTA: Chinatown Wars.
Themes included in the series include, drugs use and dealing, murder (in some cases simply for fun) and prostitution. Most are surprised that Nintendo are allowing such content to be released on the console, but additional games players are pleased to finally see some mature content on the portable console.
The newest Grand Theft Auto game will certainly gain a top quantity of sales after the success of the Xbox 360 and PS3 editions of the series. If GTA: Chinatown Wars DS marks the start of a far more open-minded view from Nintendo on adult games or whether is it is a one off remains to be seen.
