Speaking to Edge Magazine, Houser stated that GTA : Chinatown Wars "can’t be softened to make it family-friendly – that’s not the game we’re making. We’ve never not done well by sticking to our guns.”
Houser also revealed that everyone's favourite nimbly-pimbly, watered down game company are totally down with the mature direction they are taking, "Nintendo wanted us to make GTA, and we wanted to make a game on their platform. They didn’t want us to make a GTA for kids, and we weren’t interested in making a game we wouldn’t normally make.”
This news is hardly surprising given that Rockstar are hardly renowned for compromising on their games (Manhunt, Bully) and that there are already a number of mature rated games on the DS (Dementium : The Ward, Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil : Deadly Silence), but im sure that this is a fact that The Mail will gleefully ignore if they ever get hold of this info. Shhhh, please don't tell them....
I am aware that my burgeoning blog is turning into a GTA : Chinatown forum for my excited DS sandbox rantings, but I will make sure I will write about something else soon. Maybe about how tickled I am that Phoenix Wright : Trials and Tribulations is coming to Europe next week. It's almost time to stand in my underwear and shouting "objection!" at my DS again. I cannot wait.
UPDATE 25/09/2008 2241 : Oh golly gosh. It looks like the Sun got there first, proclaiming "FURY OVER DRUG DEAL VID GAME".
