Back in November, Warner Bros. announced that LEGO City Undercover (which used to be a Wii U exclusive) would get a Nintendo Switch version in Spring. Today, the publisher finally revealed the very first trailer for this new version of game, which can be found below. Unfortunately, that trailer doesn’t show anything new at all, so it will feel pretty familiar to those of you who played LEGO City Undercover on Wii U.
Here’s the trailer:
Warner Bros. also shared a fact sheet for the game, but just like the trailer, it doesn’t reveal anything new at all, with just one exception (see below for more details!). It basically lists the main features and elements of the game as it was released on Wii U, minus the Wii U exclusive things (like the GamePad features, for example).
In LEGO City Undercover, you play as Chase McCain, a policeman who comes back to LEGO City in order to put the infamous Rex Fury behind the bars. It’s a full open-world game, where players are completely free to explore the city, which is made of 20 unique districts. Said districts are filled to the brim with (tons of) collectibles, activities (such as lost pigs to bring back home), and a lot more.
As for the main story, it consists of 15 special assignements, and the usual puntastic story-telling fans of LEGO games are pretty familiar with. Main characters include Frank Honey (a rather clumsy policeman), paramedic Natalia Kowalski (that Chase has a crush on), and Chief of Police Dunby.
Overall, the game features more than 300 unlockable and playable characters, and this seems to be one of the new features of this “remaster”! Since the game is rumoured to have co-op, it does make sense that there would be other playable characters.
In the game, Chase McCain can don 8 different costumes, that all grant him special abilities. Of course, you will need those to progress through the main story, but it’s really when it comes to exploring the city and getting all the collectibles that they shine.
There’s also 100 different vehicle to use: sports cars, police ars, helicopters, and more.
LEGO City Undercover (Switch) comes out in Spring in Europe and North America.
