Tomorrow (November 14th), L.A. Noire will make its debut on the Nintendo Switch. Rockstar Games and Take-Two haven’t been really talkative when it comes to this new version of game (on any platform, not only the Switch one), but last week, we finally got a trailer, some screenshots, and some more details.
Let’s start with the trailer, showing some Nintendo Switch footage:
As mentioned previously, the Nintendo Switch version of L.A. Noire includes all the content from the original game, including the DLC cases. But there’s more: special suits, that give Cole Phelps (the protagonist) “unique abilities”… unfortunately, we don’t know what those are yet. As mentioned in this post, the game runs at 1080p when docked, and 720p when in Handheld (or Tabletop) Mode).
As for the motion controls mentioned when the game was first announced, they allows you to use the Joy-Con to check objects and the likes, but that’s not all: they are also used for aiming and brawling. There’s also touchscreen controls: you can pinch to zoom into areas of interest, double-tap items to interactive with them, rotate objects, and more.
Finally, a change that’s not exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version: the interrogation system has been revamped. Now, instead of having to choose between Truth, Doubt, and Lie, you have the following options to choose from: Good Cop, Bad Cop, and Accuse. If you played the original and felt the interrogation were rather unpredictable, this new system should hopefully improve things a fair bit.
Here’s some screenshots for the game:
L.A. Noire (Switch) comes out on November 14th in Europe and North America, and December 7th in Japan.
