Joystiq.com had a meeting with Rockstar Games yesterday for the first hands-on of the "remastered" PSP version of Chinatown Wars. They asked a number of questions. The most obvious is: What's happening with the DS's touch based mini-games? Rockstar replied: They are still in-game, but they are now button based.


They hot wired a car to try this new concept out, and were presented with a comic-style panel in on the side of the screen. They had to rotate the analog stick, and then press L & R in time when prompted. According to Rockstar, they have done similar things with the other mini-games, but no new mini-games have been added exclusively for PSP.


Joystiq were quickly pointed towards new features like a new aiming "arc" for lobbing grenades and Molotov's whilst driving. Loads of new bloom lighting is in there, which helped light up explosions. The in-game PDA has had a bit of a re-design, and now mimics the PSP's XMB.'

The drug deal screenshot makes me want to play again. I loved that part of the game, I made so much money.

I thought they would redo the overall look of the game. It still looks like fun.

@Massacre, True man, that was also my favorite thing in the game, gave me that Vice City Stories Empire Feeling.
