Rockstar made the mobile versions, which will have some all-new bonus features and top-notch graphics, to celebrate the game's 10-year release. That's right: Vice City, the sixth Grand Theft Auto title, came out way back in 2002.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City gave players the freedom of a massive open-world in one of the most iconic and vibrant settings ever realized in a game," said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games, in a statement. "It was a defining moment in the series and we’re delighted to be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year with a stunning, updated version for phones and tablets."

As part of the anniversary celebration, Grand Theft Auto fans will find new promotional gear for sale at the Rockstar Games Warehouse and through online sweepstakes.

There's no solid release date for the mobile game yet: Rockstar's only saying "later this fall." The company's silent on any Windows 8 version, too.
