The recently delayed Rockstar title is scheduled for a September 25 release by Sony's Hong Kong PSN Store.
Originally due to launch in August, Grand Theft Auto 3's re-release was held up while Sony sought clearance for certain audio tracks.
The listing suggests that the firm has managed to obtain the necessary licenses, and that a Western release is imminent.
Grand Theft Auto 3 and Vice City were re-rated for the PS3 in June.
It was the second time that the ESRB, which is the North American ratings board, had assigned age ratings to the PS2 games this year.
Despite the delay, the potential launch of Grand Theft Auto 3 would suggest a Vice City release is not far behind.
The PSN re-release follows the commemorative Grand Theft Auto 3: 10th Anniversary Edition, which launched on mobile devices late last year.
Available for iOS and Android, the game featured updated visuals as well as touchscreen controls and autosave functionality.
