Gameloft releases trailer for upcoming Android game Gangstar Rio: City of Saints


Gameloft’s popular crime series, Gangstar, will make its third return to Android this fall with the newest update, City of Saints. Following in the footsteps of Rovio, Gameloft headed to the city of Rio for the latest chapter.

Details are slim at this point, but it looks like Gangstar Rio: City of Saints will offer more of the Grand Theft Auto-inspired gameplay we’ve seen in the first two titles. (Gangstar: West Coast Hustle set in Los Angeles and Gangstar: Miami Vindication set in Miami).

Check out the short teaser video below for a brief preview of  the action. We’ve been patiently waiting for Gameloft’s other crime game, 9mm, since it was announced in May. Hopefully we won’t have to wait as long for Gangstar Rio.

Which crime game would you rather play? Gangstar Rio or 9mm?

    I’m waiting for 9mm. May was a long time ago now :(

    I’ll get the one that had as many cheats as the real GTA games. It was fun to just give yourself a boatload of weapons using the codes and just try to attract as much cop attention before you died or got arrested! Or to relax one can play around in the tank or air plane from GTA: San Andreas or the jetpack in GTA: Vice City.

    Obviously inspired by Saints Row. Here’s to hoping it’s actually good.


    I cant get into gaming like that on my tablet or phone.. Smh, hopefully one day i can

    Looks good but 9mm has more of my attention. Games like these are definitely a nice way to kill some time when the lectures get boring.

    Is it just me or does that Gangsters head look more of the shape of an African American. Maybe it’s just me but it doesn’t look right.

    9mm got my attention right now, but, isn’t this kind of stuff getting old? No? Ok.

  • HackNet

    Wired? I’m not sure how that’s going to work. Maybe a Bluetooth wireless controller, but I doubt wired would be something of choice for any manufacturer.

    Total ripoff of Saints Row. Not surprised considering that’s the only thing that Gameloft knows how to do.

  • keemworld
