Max Payne Mobile hits Android this week

The next generation of mobile shooting video games will be dropping this week, complete with potty-mouthed hero Max Payne in attendance. The game will be called, quite simply, Max Payne Mobile, and will be popping up on the Google Play App Store this week. You can also currently grab this game for your iPad or iPhone on the iTunes Store if you're in the mood for some double-fisted pistol action right this second for the same low price of $2.99 right out of the gate.

This game will being on HD graphics as well as high-resolution textures to the Android world, with no less than user-customizable controls, gamepad support, and Social Club connectivity. Max Payne Mobile takes on the storyline you love from the original Max Payne – classic! – and expands it for the mobile environment. Wouldn't want to get too mired up in the past, now would we?

Like Grand Theft Auto III, this game will be released on the NVIDIA TegraZone as well, complete with assurances from NVIDIA that it'll look and play utterly fantastically on all Tegra-toting devices.
