Lego City Undercover was originally released for the Wii U in 2013. It is a sandbox-style action-adventure that is developed by TT Games, a purveyor of plenty of highly acclaimed Lego titles including Lego Dimensions, and based on the Lego City line of toys.
Lego City Undercover, where the player takes detective Chase McCain on a mission to halt Rex Fury’s criminal efforts, was itself well-received upon its initial release. Therefore, it’s nice to see that many more gamers will finally get the chance to play it.
In other tweets, Lego has revealed that the game will be “remastered”, which suggests that we can expect enhanced graphics. It’s unclear exactly how much new will be added to the game, but Lego has said that it reveal more information “over the next couple of months”.
