GTA Wii to Follow DS Version?

by Skylar Wilcox (2008-07-25)

The announcement of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for DS was one of the biggest surprises for hardcore gamers at last week's Nintendo press conference.  The Wii has already played host to versions of Table Tennis and Bully.  After years of being snubbed by Rockstar, it finally looks like Nintendo systems are starting to get their attention.  Could this lead to a GTA game landing on the Wii?  MTV Multiplayer recently sat down with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime to ask if anything was in the works.

Multiplayer: Can Nintendo system owners take this sign of a DS "GTA" coming out as a sign that there is an increased chance or any plans for there to be a "GTA" on the Wii?

Fils-Aime: You know, a "GTA" on the Wii is all based on what Rockstsar and Take Two want to do. And again, from our standpoint, if they build a bottoms-up game that takes advantage of what we do well, I'd love to see it on the platform.

Multiplayer: But have you had any conversations with them about that?

Fils-Aime: I have not had any of those conversations.

So there you have it.  Reggie says nothing's happening on the Wii front just yet, but it's certainly a better possibility now than ever before.  We've contacted Rockstar and Take Two for their comments on the matter.
