It was later released in October on Sony's PSP & PSP Go and even later on Apple's iPhone & iPod touch in January 2010. The iPad version of the game was remade in HD with additional features and released in September 2010.

The game made use of a new viewpoint similar to the older top-down style of the original GTAs but on an angle with full rotating ability. The DS version used a new style of rendering called cel-shading to give the graphics a comic book look and feel. Non-PSP versions of the game also use the touch screen functionality of their platform.
