The best Grand Theft Auto game of the PS2 era, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, is going mobile sometime in December.

With the success of Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City on mobile, we've all been hoping Rockstar would add San Andreas to its mobile lineup, and this morning, the studio announced that our wishes are coming true.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, considered to be best GTA to date by many, will be upgraded for its mobile release. Remastered graphics, enhanced shadows, better draw distance, and enhanced car and character models are just a few of the upgrades Rockstar is adding.

The mobile version of the game will also feature different touch screen control options and full controller support. It will be launching on select (read: powerful enough) iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, and Amazon Kindle devices. Rockstar will be announcing more details soon, so stay tuned!
