Lego City Undercover Announced For Nintendo Switch

My favorite Lego game of all time is Lego City Undercover on the Wii U. It combined an open world huge city to explore with the traditional level designs fans are familiar with to create a fantastic experience. The comedy was spot-on and I laughed more times than I can count. The only downsides were the awful load times that happened when going from missions to the overworld (and vice versa), and the lack of a 2-player mode. Despite these shortcomings, the game was extremely memorable and entertaining.

That’s why I’m excited to hear that it’s being prepared for the Nintendo Switch (as well as PS4 and Xbox One) for a Spring 2017 release. That means it will be one of the first games to come out for Nintendo’s new device, which is set to launch some time in March.

It will be interesting to see if the Switch version still includes some of the Nintendo references that were peppered throughout the original game. Also I hope WB Games takes this opportunity to fix the awful load times that plagued the Wii U version. It’s unknown if there will be more enhancements to this release or if it will be more of a straight port. As the game approaches release we will surely find out more details.
