PSP on GTA has been slapped with the name Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Rockstar has announced, the title to launch in North America and Europe following the European launch of the PSP handheld in September.
Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is being developed by Rockstar Leeds in conjunction with Rockstar North and will be on show behind closed doors at E3 this week.
Liberty City Stories is an entirely new game in the Grand Theft Auto series. The original storyline and all new missions take place in Liberty City, featuring the interactive, open environment, class voice talent and diverse music that have become pioneering trademarks of the series.
"Returning to Liberty City and bringing it to life on a handheld system has been both nostalgic and extremely inspiring for us," says Sam Houser, President of Rockstar.
"The incredible PSP system technology allows for fans of the previous Grand Theft Auto titles to revisit Liberty City and see it from an amazing new perspective with an entirely original storyline. Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories will be a bold new experience that has never before been possible on a portable platform."
