New GTA: Advance Info and Pre-Order

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 08:48 PM MDT | By rappo
Take 2 Games has released some information about Grand Theft Auto: Advance along with a chance to pre-order the game. The developers of the title were finally confirmed as Digital Eclipse and Rockstar North. Many people had speculated that newly acquired Mobius Entertainment (aka Rockstar Leeds), would be developing the Game Boy Advance title, but it seems they may be working on a more important project. The game's official feature list, along with an official plot summary were posted on the site earlier today:
It was supposed to be the last job you and Vinnie would do for the mob. After this, you'd both have enough money to escape this vicious circle, and Liberty City, for good. Then Vinnie's getaway car went up in a ball of flame along with all the cash. Suddenly every cop in the city is chasing you down. You'll get out of Liberty City all right, but not before you find Vinnie's murderers and turn the tables on whomever it is that's out to get you.

Features:

  • Open-ended gameplay that provides hours of portable entertainment.
  • An all-new, revenge-driven storyline that puts you on the tail of your mentor's murderers.
  • Explore and exploit a sprawling, handheld Liberty City.


  • Also, GTA: Advance is now available for sale at the Rockstar Warehouse for $29.99. To order, click here.

    I'd be willing to bet this isn't the final box art either, as the first picture of the San Andreas box was just a plain black with white text.

    I bet in a couple weeks the real and final box art will be revealed.

    if there arent bikes its not worth getting? its top down, bikes will look the same as cars anyway, just smaller. i do hope it has radio too, generic gba souds coming from the thing all the time will get annoying

    There have been M GBA games, like Max Payne, which is also by rockstar. Also, Bikes probably won't make a difference, since I guess the only difference would be that it's smaller and you fall off it when you crash. And I too believe it'll be replaced with the now token painted pictures background cover
