Rockstar Games has announced the upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on mobile devices. The massive sandbox game has been remastered for a mobile release, complete with touch controls and improved graphics.

According to Rockstar, this is the best looking version of San Andreas yet, with “dynamic and detailed shadows, greater draw distance, an enriched color palette [and] enhanced character and car models.” It will offer all of the expected regions, including Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas, as well as the open landscapes in between.

The game will feature touch controls including contextual control options that will only display buttons on the screen when players need them. The app will contain three different control setups for driving, and will also introduce an updated checkpoint system to the world, making progression easier for quick play sessions on mobile.

The game will offer full controller support on iOS7, and will be released on iOS, Android, Amazon Kindle and Windows Mobile devices next month. Check back soon to track the game on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
