Max Payne Shotgunning His Way To Android And iOS This Month Courtesy Of Rockstar Games

What a badass...

Grand Theft Auto III for iOS and Android was introduced earlier this year for $2.99 with much fanfare. Today, we have more exciting news from game maker Rockstar, who has announced that Max Payne Mobile is launching for iOS on April 12th and Android April 26th.

Max Payne Mobile is a mobile optimized version of the full Max Payne classic released in July of 2001, Rockstar announced on its blog today. The game will feature HD graphics (no word if it will be Retina optimized for iPad), connectivity to Rockstar’s Social Club, and fully customizable controls. There’s no word on pricing, but presumably it will be priced at $2.99 like Grand Theft Auto III.

This is sure to be a popular game for those of us who remember playing it on our PC and PS2 almost a decade ago. Are you as excited as we are? We’ll let you know when it’s available in each respected store.
