– GPS seen on the touch screen while you move through the city

– Top screen brings you all the action, while the lower screen will let you control elements like the PDA, GPS, the radio, access to the people on the map, or using Motolov cocktails and grenades.

A Spanish magazine recently got their hands on Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the DS and discussed map details. It looks as though the game will feature a similar map as GTA IV, though without Alderney.

“Even though many people believed that Chinatown Wars would develop only in the Chinese neighborhood the game uses nearly the whole map that appears in GTA IV. The districts that appear are: Dukes (Queens), Bohan (Bronx), Broker (Brooklyn) and Algonquin (Manhattan). The only neighborhood from GTA IV that doesn’t appear is Alderney (Jersey City).”

“The issue is that there are multiple potential outcomes… it’s not as simple as ‘yes it’s coming’ or ‘no, it’s not’. And we have a few other issues to contend with that I’m not able to get into details on that are coloring what direction we are able take with the franchise in the West. Again, we’re deeply in ‘stay tuned’ territory but I don’t expect to have any solid news to share openly, one way or the other for a couple months.” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

It seems as though there’s more to bringing the game over than just licensing issues. Hopefully we’ll hear more news in the coming months.

Tiki Towers is a game of construction, destruction, problem solving, and monkeys! You must reclaim the islands of your tribe by defeating series of evil enemy chiefs. Work with your monkey friends to build towers out of native materials such as bamboo poles, coconuts, and vines. Match wits against the enemy chiefs bent on destroying your towers and driving you from the island, navigate levels filled with crazy building challenges, and deal with unfriendly wildlife and other environmental obstacles. Assign monkeys to chant for the BananaMana necessary to cast spells that counter the attacks of the enemy chiefs. Play in either single player or two-player cooperative mode.

Tiki Towers should be released on December 8 for 1000 Wii points.
