One of the most iconic games were released this month ten years ago, and to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III, developers Rockstar announced that the title will be making its way to other games systems as well.
For Apple’s iOS devices, the title will be released for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, while Android’s Droid X2, HTC Evo 2, LG Optimus 2X, Motorola Atrix and Samsung Galaxy S2 will also see a release. To round out the next-gen devices, tablets such as the Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad, Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 will also be treated to the vehicular theft.
But Rockstar also added that fans will be able to get their hands on something extra. “We’re also pleased to announce that beginning today, a limited-edition action figure of lead character Claude, created by renowned collectible manufacturer Sideshow, will be available for pre-order in limited quantities at the Rockstar Warehouse,” they said in a statement.
This fully articulated 1:6 scale action figure of Claude comes dressed in his original attire of cargo pants and a bomber jacket, but can also sport his iconic Liberty City Prison-issued jumpsuit (supplied) and comes equipped with an arsenal of classic weapons from Grand Theft Auto III including a bat, knife, grenades, pistol, sniper rifle, and assault rifle.
