News: GTAIV: San Andreas Beta 3 is out now

Without so much as a peep from Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for iOS has mysteriously popped up on the iTunes store in New Zealand. It is in fact the actual game and is currently selling for $9.99 NZD, which is roughly $6.99 USD. Oddly enough, the game only weighs in at 1.63GB -- a drastic size drop compared to the Xbox, PS2 and PC versions of the game. It is available in 8 languages: English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Spanish. The mobile features according to the store page are as follows:

  • Remastered, high-resolution graphics built specifically for mobile including lighting enhancements, an enriched color palette and improved character models.
  • Enhanced for the iPhone 5 series and iPad 4th Gen and above with dynamic detailed shadows and real-time environmental reflections.
  • Physical controller support for all Made-for-iOS controllers.
  • Cloud save support for playing across all your iOS devices for Rockstar Social Club Members.
  • Dual analog stick controls for full camera and movement control.
  • Three different control schemes and customizable controls with contextual options to display buttons only when you need them.

Supported devices are:

  • iPhone 4s
  • iPhone 5 Family
  • iPod Touch 5th gen
  • iPad 2, 3rd and 4th gen
  • iPad Air
  • iPad Mini and Mini with Retina

No word yet when SA will jump borders to other countries nor any word if Android and Windows Phone will get shafted.

EDIT: San Andreas now appears to be on both the US and UK iTunes stores. The price is currently $6.99 in the US and £4.99 in the UK. As of 12:21 AM EST, the game doesn't appear to be on Google Play nor the WP Store. Rockstar continues to be completely silent.
