Rockstar has announced
that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
, the latest portable offering in the open-ended crime series, will be making the jump from DS to PSP. The game will be available in both UMD and digital download format when it's released in the US and Europe this autumn. Featuring enhanced widescreen graphics, improved lighting and animation and additional story missions, this version of Chinatown Wars
"will take full advantage of the power of the PSP system."
No new assets have been released for the PSP version -- in fact, the official website
still says it's exclusive to the DS -- but we should see more of this new addition to the ever-growing 2009 PSP lineup soon. See the PSP box art, after the break.
