    The previous Wii U exclusive game, Lego City Undercover will be getting a port to Playstation 4, Xbox One, PC, and interestingly, the Nintendo Switch. The company states that more information on the release will be coming soon in the next few months. It's currently being called a "re-release", but it is unknown if this will be a simple port, or a "definitive" version.

    I can't believe this game was exclusive to wii u for so long. They definitely missed out on so much sales. Finally these devs making good moves

    I wonder if the Nintendo-themed easter-eggs will just be changed, or completely removed from non-Nintendo platforms.

    That was a prequel and it did suck. This is a full on port.

    It was a decent open world game for the wii u. Some go as far as to say it was the wii u's GTA.

    And I was just doing (and still am for today and tomorrow) a Know Your Game about Lego City Undercover

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/know-your-game-lego-city-undercover.450026/

    Anyway I am so exited to get this on PC as well as the Switch! I just hope it is a definitive version or has extra content such as maybe featuring what happened to Blackwell.

    I did brah

    Not so much of a port as the 3ds and Wiiu have very different stories and the 3ds version is the prequel which was released maybe a month later.

    What is wrong with that? Porting great games from older consoles is always a way to convince people to buy it

    The "..." made it seem like you don't approve of it.

    This is great news. One aspect I hope they improve A LOT are the loading times because anyone that has played the WiiU version knows how dreadfully long they are.
