GTA: ChinaTown Wars could be the DS' first 18 game

The body hasn’t said much about why it gave the upcoming Nintendo DS game an adult classification, but a BBFC briefing document has stated that the title contains “very strong language and drug references”.

GTA: ChinaTown Wars is though to be the first DS title given an 18 rating, something that’ll no-doubt draw the punters in.

The BBFC also classified the game as an action title and said it has a total run time of 168 minutes. The videogame is based in Liberty City and is described as an "entirely original" entry into the GTA game franchise.

Grand Theft Auto: ChinaTown Wars will be available across Europe on 20 March. No prices yet. ®
