If you didn’t read the headline, you’ll be surprised to know that the latest iteration of the infamous GTA series will be released today for the Nintendo DS.

As is obvious – this game takes place in Chinatown where you make use of the touch screen to navigate through street races, evading the police and all that usual GTA stuff we all know and love. Apparently the game is good. Real good. IGN gave it a 9.5 and 1UP gave it an A-.

Now, we all know that GTA is a controversial series. Some people claim it makes children violent killers. Two other controversial games were also released recently, including the ridiculously violent MadWorld for Wii and the allegedly racist Resident Evil 5 for 360/PS3. Maybe GTA Chinatown wars will be accused of racism as well.
