LEGO City Undercover Gets a Re-Release on Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One

The Wii U exclusive expands to current platforms.

Warner Bros has announced that LEGO City Undercover, the Wii U-exclusive title first launched in 2013, will be seeing a re-release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. LEGO City Undercover is an open-world LEGO adventure, putting players in the bricks of rogue cop Chase McCain. The game is planned for a Spring 2017 release.

In previous statements about this expansion of LEGO City Undercover, Warner Bros described the game as a "re-release" and a "remaster". Outside of improved graphics on certain platforms, there's little indication of what's changed for the game in this re-release. There will be an additional two-player cooperative mode according to a Best Buy listing, but otherwise, this looks like the same game released on the Wii U four years ago.

The original title was developed by TT Fusion, a division of TT Games once known as Embryonic Studios. Perhaps Warner Bros will provide further details in the future. Until then, the Switch lineup adds another game!

If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
