Nintendo has announced the official release date for one of the most highly anticipated Wii U exclusive titles, LEGO City Undercover. Developed by TT Games, LEGO City Undercover will be available in a limited-edition software bundle which includes both the retail videogame and a LEGO minifigure of Chase McCain: the multi-talented cop whose many skills will be required to save the day.
In LEGO City Undercover, Chase McCain is trying to arrest the dangerous Rex Fury who is responsible for the recent crime wave in LEGO City. To do this he goes undercover, exploring the sprawling open-world LEGO City and donning a range of different costumes for special abilities; for example, dressed up as a miner he can utilise dynamite, while becoming a robber lets him pry open doors. The unique properties of the Wii U GamePad controller come into play throughout the hunt for Rex Fury. The GamePad functions as a Communicator to talk to others, is used to scan the surroundings for clues or criminals, or to view the handy map and GPS route when driving around the city.
LEGO City Undercover launches across Europe on 28th March 2013, exclusively for Wii U. Stay tuned to Electronic Theatre for upcoming news on the prequel to the videogame, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, coming out later in 2013 for Nintendo 3DS.
