Moments before the Apple keynote is scheduled to start today, Rockstar announced Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars HD for the iPad. The game sounds like it will feature the same content of the existing iPhone version of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the iPhone, with HD graphics and modified controls like most HD-ized games.

Chinatown Wars will be available on September 9th for $9.99. For more information on the iPhone version of the game, buzz on over to our comprehensive review from when it originally was released. During keynotes, Apple has historically shown gameplay footage of yet to be released big name titles from large publishers like EA and Gameloft. If we're lucky, maybe we'll see Grand Theft Auto on the iPad today.

    This is great but I would rather see a Retina Display update for the current iPhone version.

    One can't help to guess that this could also be a possible launch title for the possible new Apple TV with an iDevice as the controller.

    In Japan, even non-HD version of this game is not available. And that's so lame. Come on Rockstar. Don't ignore Japanese market.

    I'm glad to see support for the iPad for this, i bought it for DS, PSP, iPhone, now i'll buy it for iPad...every time i tell myself 'i'll complete it on this system', but i never do, hopefully the iPad version will look awesome and won't require above 3.2...
