Rockstar: Nintendo wanted a bad ass GTA title
The Nintendo Power scans seemed to be hit or miss with you guys, with the cel-shaded, original GTA look turning more than a few of you off. That said, even the doubters should be able to appreciate this nugget of news from Rockstar vp of creative Dan Houser:
â€œNo one disagreed with Sam [Houser, Rockstar president and Danâ€™s brother]â€™s very clear edict that GTA has to be an M rating. It canâ€™t be softened to make it family-friendly â€“ thatâ€™s not the game weâ€™re making. Weâ€™ve never not done well by sticking to our guns. Nintendo wanted us to make GTA, and we wanted to make a game on their platform. They didnâ€™t want us to make a GTA for kids, and we werenâ€™t interested in making a game we wouldnâ€™t normally make.â€
Cel-shaded blood are GO! I’m still craving some video of this title in action, though, before I make up my mind completely.
