Among the other headline announcements were new DLC packs for Sonic: Lost World based around Yoshi’s Island and Zelda, the continuation of the Year Of Luigi with Dr. Luigi heading to the eShop on January 15th 2014 in Europe, and a confirmed European release date for Professor Layton Vs.

GTA: Vice City Headed To iOS And Android Devices On December 6th

Rockstar Games recently announced in and amongst the insane fuss over GTA V that Vice City, one of the coolest and best games ever created in my humble opinion, would be heading to portable devices before the end of the year. However, at that time they feigned to tell us when they would be released – well now we know. On December 6th, you can carry the essence of the 1980’s in your pocket for the sum of $4.99

Rockstar have said that the game “brings the full experience of GTA: Vice City to mobile devices, with native high-resolution graphics and several enhancements unique to the iOS and Android platforms”. These include “updated character models and lighting effects, new and more precise firing and targeting options, a fully customizable control layout and native support for Retina display devices”.

Kind of wish I had a better phone now…
