The original LEGO City Undercover was an exclusive on the Nintendo Wii U when it came out in 2013 and is still one of the best games on the system today. The vast open-world gameplay is equally fun for kids and adults, with loads of humour and exciting missions. The 2017 version appears to be very similar and should port over well to these next-gen gaming systems.
