Yes you read that right LA Noire is coming to the Nintendo Switch, as well as PS4, Xbox One and HTC Vive.
LA Noire is GTA’s more sensible little brother. Temporarily giving up the life of crime, the now defunct Team Bondi put the player in the shoes of a sweet, young detective instead of the usual homicidal maniac that Rockstar games tend to favour.
The game was originally released back in 2011 for the PS3 and Xbox 360 but is now being brought over to current generation consoles. The PS4/Xbone versions get some graphical enhancements while the Switch version gets some enhancements of it’s own. Check out what Mr Rockstar had to say below:
L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive delivers seven of the original engrossing, self-contained cases from LA Noire rebuilt specifically for virtual reality, blending breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience.
L.A. Noire for the Nintendo Switch features the complete original game and all additional downloadable content, with specific enhancements including a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble and new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work.
L.A. Noire for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One delivers the complete original game and all additional downloadable content with a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity, including enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures and more. L.A. Noire plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, capturing the grit and grime of the City of Angels like never before.
I bought LA Noire when HMV almost went bust for a really low price but I couldn’t get past the first case (yeah, the training/tutorial with the jewellery store). I am sure a lot of people are excited about this new version but nah, not for me thanks.
The new version comes to all above platforms on November 14th.
