Houser: “Nintendo didn’t want us to make GTA for kids”

Speaking in the latest edition of Edge, Rockstar boss Dan Houser's said that Nintendo was keen for GTA Chinatown Wars to maintain its adult feel.

“Nintendo wanted us to make GTA, and we wanted to make GTA on their platform," he said.

"They didn’t want us to make a GTA for kids, and we weren’t interested in making a game we wouldn’t normally make. GTA is about stealing cars and shooting people - how could it not be an 18 rating? You couldn’t do GTA without that 18 - it wouldn’t feel like it’s supposed to feel.”

Game's out next year. More on D-Pad.
