When Grand Theft Auto III landed on Android phones and tablets it became an instant classic for those devices it supported. The developers behind the smash hit, Rockstar Games, recently announced they’d be bringing another awesome shooter title to Android — Max Payne. Today we’ve just learned additional details including the release date.

Back in February we reported Max Payne Mobile was coming soon, but now according to Vox Games the release date is set for April 26th on Android and a few weeks earlier for iOS. Just like GTAIII, Max Payne will feature all of the original levels, only they’ve been tweaked for mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, but the graphics still look excellent.

If you’re a fan of the game this will surely be a must buy, if you aren’t familiar with Max Payne it’s a classic shooter style game that is a little over a decade old, but still extremely popular. Playing a NYC cop that goes on a bender for revenge after losing his family. I wont give away all the details but this should be an epic shooter for Android. No exact pricing was detailed but we can expect it to be similarly priced to the popular GTA III, around the $4.99 price range.

Additionally Max Payne’s third installment will be available for Xbox and PS3 in May.
