Supposedly Crawfish Interactive has picked up development. In fact, if you go to Nintendo's page, guess what's back on the list, uncancelled.

heres a little tidbit of info... on gamestop.com it says that Electro Source is the publisher and DMA Designs is the developer... wierd huh? also, GTA3 has been added back to Nintendos list of upcoming games for GBA (it just happened within the last couple days cuz ive been checking back there for a while because im looking for a good FPS game. im thinkin Ecks vs. Sever)
nintendo.com or gameboyadvance.com, go to master game list, theyre in alphabetical order.... GTA3 may go farther then just a mysterious box shot!!

plus, heres a supposed screenshot that i saw on a forum a couple weeks back: (if u cant see it tell me) everyone on gtaforums.com doubts its reality but the silver/black lines on the edges are really on the gba, not edit messups.

i did call destination a while back (when GTA3 was supposedly cancelled) and i asked about GTA3 for GBA. the lady told me that it was a matter for customer service, and asked me for my phone number. i gave it to her and she said theyd call me back. its been a couple weeks now...

I think that our TWOC game engine proves that we could pull off as near an approximnation that any developer could of GTA3 on GBA. However, since Crawfush went pop we have enquired into taking over the development and were not successful. In our view Take2 / Rockstar simply don't have the time to start the game from scratch, so it will most likely get finished by another larger developer.
