The first official trailer and gameplay video for Grand Theft Auto: China Town Wars has been released and looks to unleash havoc on the Nintendo DS.
The game will not be completely sticking to the original top view that I initially expected, but will be 3D with a slightly titled camera. It seems as if the developers have also opted for somewhat of a cartoony look to the game, although nothing over the top.
I have put up the gameplay video after the jump. The developers have put in a few clever stylus gimmicks into the game, such as having to manually hotwire cars and from the looks of things, the stylus will be used to fire your weapon as you drive around using the dpad.
I haven’t really had a lot of interest in China Town Wars until now, but after seeing the gameplay videos and remembering how much fun the original 2D classics were, I am starting to see how much fun this could be.
Don’t forget to check out the gameplay video after the jump. GTA: China Town Wars is out on March 17.
