Rockstar Games has announced that it’s bringing, its 2011 investigation game L.A. Noire to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 14. The game will also be released on the HTC Vive, featuring several cases rebuilt for VR.
‘We’re excited to bring L.A. Noire’s unique mix of real detective work, classic Hollywood atmosphere and thrilling action to these new platforms,’ said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games
L.A. Noire the Nintendo Switch edition comes with the full original game, alongside all of the additional DLC expansions. The Switch version sees the implementation of gesture-based controls, HD rumble, ‘contextual touch-screen controls’ when playing in handheld mode, and two new camera angles: wide and over-the-shoulder. Now you can investigate on the go, in the bath, or even on the loo.
L.A. Noire is also coming to the PS4 and Xbox One, complete with a graphical overhaul. This includes enhanced lighting, new camera angles, and high-resolution textures running at 1080p on PS4 and Xbox One. The game will even run in 4K on the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X consoles, because we all love ultra HD gritty noir thrillers.
For those folks who’ve been hankering after some detective stuff to do in virtual reality, L.A. Noire: The VR Case will be coming to HTC Vive with seven select cases from the original game rebuilt specifically for the VR experience.
The Switch edition of L.A. Noire will be the second Take-Two game released on the platform, after NBA 2K18 on September 15, but most importantly it’ll be the first Rockstar game released for the Switch. Previously the CEO of Take-Two, Strauss Zelnick, said that, ‘I've said over and over again that when Nintendo comes to market you never want to count them out.’ Could this hint at more Switch titles coming down the line? I’d be up for a portable GTA V, thanks.
L.A. Noire is out on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 14.
