There’s a new ‘LEGO City Undercover’ game coming out (and it’s not just for Nintendo)

LEGO City Undercover

The new LEGO City Undercover will be available for the XBOX One, PS4, Nintendo Switch and on PC this spring.

Warner Bros. Interactive dropped a trailer Thursday for its brand new version of LEGO City Undercover, which will be available this spring for the XBOX One, PS4 and the new Nintendo Switch.

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.
