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!
