After Wii U Exclusivity, Lego City Undercover Comes To New Consoles In April
The sandbox game hits PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, And PC soon.
Following its release as a Wii U-exclusive in 2013, Lego City Undercover will launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 4, Warner Bros. announced today. The game comes out in Europe three days later, on April 7.
To celebrate the release date reveal, Warner Bros. released a new trailer that shows off the game's brand-new co-op mode. Also on display in the video is main character Chase McCain, who is on a mission to defeat the bad guy, Rex Fury. As the game's name suggests, McCain goes undercover, putting on a number of disguises, which leads to some silly situations; take a look:
The new console versions were announced in November. At the time, the games were described as both "remastered" and a "re-release." It's unclear whether the versions coming in spring will be straight ports or or if improvements and content additions will be included.
Unlike many other Lego video games, Lego City Undercover is based on an original story where players take control of an undercover police officer named Chase McCain to bring criminals to justice.
"By the time Lego City Undercover's story comes to an end, you have guided Chase through every action-movie circumstance imaginable, and have probably seen the 'twists' coming a mile away. And that's perfectly OK," said Kevin VanOrd in GameSpot's Lego City Undercover review.
"The game knows you know where it's going, and it has fun at its own expense ... There are bigger, more complex, more beautiful open-world games on the market. But none of them are this good at making you feel so young at heart."
A prequel, Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins, is available on Nintendo 3DS.
