This is not the first time Max Payne becomes handheld, however. A special version of the game was created by Mobius Entertainment for the Game Boy Advance console in 2003. The game was an isometric, much simplified version of the original Remedy title, having 12 converted original chapters of 25, but retaining James McCaffrey's narration and graphic novel presentation. Here is a trailer of the Game Boy Max Payne for fun, just to see how much the mobile technology has changed in 9 years:
