BBFC gives Chinatown Wars an 18 rating - a DS first


The BBFC has awarded Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars an 18 rating - a first for Nintendo DS.

The game apparently "contains very strong language and drug references," warns the governing body.

Also, the BBFC page reveals the Chinatown Wars contains 168 minutes of cut-scenes, so there's plenty to see and do it seems.

GTA: Chinatown Wars is coming to DS in the US on March 17 and Europe three days later.
