Lego City Undercover gets new recruits on PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC in Spring 2017

The once Wii U exclusive will finally get a multiplatform release this Spring.

9

WB Games has announced Lego City Undercover will finally receive a multiplatform release as new recruits will be able to play the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam in Spring 2017.

Lego City Undercover originally released on the Wii U as a console exclusive back in March 2013, which makes its multiplatform release a bit strange at this point considering it’ll be four years since its original release. Thankfully, today’s news means more gamers will be able to experience this excellent kid-friendly open-world action game as we thought it was one of the Wii U’s best games.

WB Games didn’t go into detail as to what enhancements, if any, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and Steam players can expect, although we’re sure it’ll be a matter of time until the publisher announces more information.

      Interesting, never paid attention to this since I don't have a wiiU. Is it basically GTA for kids? I love playing these games with my son and that could be a ton of fun.

        Exactly! I'm definitely going to play it with my daughter when it comes out. She has always liked LEGO, and since she'll be 3 in Spring 2017, I'm hoping she can enjoy games a bit more.

          My son is 5 (and a 3/4, he'd remind me!) which is the age he started to finally get a grasp on games. He always loved watching me play starting around age 3 and would even mash buttons to make a dude jump or whatever... But 5 is when things really started to click for him. And yes, the LEGO games are perfect for learning how to play real games.

          He's getting LEGO Dimensions for Christmas and has no idea. Mom told him a while back he would NEVER get it because we went down the Infinity hole previously. But there have been some amazing sales (Starter set $40, fun packs 3/$20, 50% off Story sets and team packs) so she finally caved. Kid is going to lose his mind!

            We were kids in the total wrong era. Toys are most def way cooler now than when we were kids.

                I have 3 girls. While the oldest will watch Star Wars Rebels with me, that's about it. So, I have few excuses like you.

                  My daughter is 21 months old and 'm pretty sure my song already has her on the fast track to geekdom. She loves superheroes more than dolls.

                    My 4yr old just started taking to the new DC Super Hero Girls version of Wonder Woman. I'm a bit torn about it. Cool for superheroes, but they've got it all mixed up with like Poison Ivy being a good "guy", Grog running the school they attend, etc.

      Great game... the only knock on it was the ridiculously long loading times. I imagine that will be rectified in the new releases.

      If WB Games wants to make lots of money they only have to put a little effort in this version.

      Implement true streaming, add a bunch of side missions, make it easy to change outfit and most importantly, lets get some nice pink Lego Friends and items into the game so they can sell it to girls as well.

      Then release a new version every 2nd year and i would be a customer..

      ALSO.. Fantastic news!

      This game had way better writing than I was expecting: some real Monkey Island level wit.
      And the inexplicably elaborate Green Mile parody. In an E-Rated game.

      Definitely double dipping this one. Great game. Shame the 3DS prequel was so weak... Would love to see them do more with this
