Great news gamers! Rockstar announced this morning that it is working on a port for its popular Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas title, and it will be landing on iOS (and Android) in December. Additionally, it will support new MFi controllers.

Rockstar has already published a handful of GTA games in the App Store, but this one will be particularly sweet. First released for consoles in 2004, San Andreas won numerous ‘Game of the Year’ awards and sold over 27.5 million copies…

From Rockstar’s official blog:

“Before GTAV took us to the sun-bleached sidewalks and humming concrete freeways of present-day Los Santos and beyond, there was Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the biggest GTA of the PS2 era. Now, head back to the early 90s with CJ and the Grove Street Families when Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas comes to mobile devices next month.

Encompassing Los Santos, San Fierro, Las Venturas and everything in between, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has been upgraded for its mobile release. Newly remastered graphics including dynamic and detailed shadows, greater draw distance, an enriched color palette, plus enhanced character and car models make this the best-looking version of San Andreas yet.

The game also features brand new touch controls including contextual control options to display buttons only when you need them, three new control schemes for driving and maneuvering, and a reworked checkpoint system for easier progression.

Additionally, Rockstar notes that San Andreas for mobile will also come equipped with full controller support, including the MFi controller capabilities introduced in iOS 7. The good news is, both MOGA and Logitech have already released gamepads.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be available for select iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle and Windows Mobile devices. Stay tuned for more details in the weeks ahead.
