"Grand Theft Auto 3 for GBA"

Here is the story straight from GCA affiliate TendoGamers:

Not much being said, but several sources have been able to confirm that Grand Theft Auto 3 will see light on Game Boy Advance. As mentioned, details remain scarce - what we can tell you however, is that the game will remain intact aside from the "2D" conversion.

GTA3 for GBA is currently being developed by Destination Software, and is expected for release sometime in 2002.
