If Grand Theft Auto 3 wasn’t enough for your ten-year-old console game needs, Max Payne is headed to mobile devices this month courtesy of Rockstar Games. Originally created by the great Remedy Entertainment in 2001, the run-and-gun platformer introduced the world to bullet time (though, due to The Matrix, it was never officially called that) and a snarly, arrogant meathead named Max.

Rockstar Toronto eventually brought the game to the PS2 later that year, with its neo-noir graphic novel stylings intact, and now the game is arriving on iOS and Android with updated graphics and touch-based controls. It will also have “Social Connect” and customizable controls. Support devices include iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4, iPad 1, iPad 2 and the new iPad, with a list of supported Android devices in the coming weeks.

The iOS port will be released on April 12th, while the Android version is coming on April 26th. Let the games begin!

    Do people play on cell phones? I kinda prefer physical buttons. I mean I’d play a game on my cell if I am travelling but I don’t know if I’d play such an intensive game. I’d rather prefer games like angry birds.

    I guess it comes down to tastes. I think this game will be a good iPad/Android Tablet game.

    God this old news. This was mentioned on android police April 05 approx.

    Max Payne is an instant classic with its bullet time. I played many hours playing this game. Finding mods and such. Wonder if it will have the option to add different mods like on the PC version for android.

    Another classic game coming out on phones. This is awesome. The controls may not be the best, but it’s easier for quick game play and I don’t have to lug around a laptop to play.

    How can you play a Shooter on a phone with no dedicated “fire” button on the back… should be interesting to see how they pull this off.
