LEGO City Undercover originally released in 2013 as a Nintendo Wii U exclusive – Warner Bros now wants to re-release it for the Xbox One, PC, PS4, and Nintendo’s new and upcoming Switch console.
If you are not much into gaming – yes Warner Bros does more than just movies and television; while Warner Bros have published some incredible games such as the Batman: Arkham trilogy, they have also published more than a dozen LEGO games so far – all of them with an interesting and engaging story.
The LEGO games are – for the most part – developed by TT Fusion and are based on existing franchises. There are games based on Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Avengers – there’s even one for The LEGO Movie; it’s a great thing for the fans of these incredible movies and books.
LEGO City Undercover, however, is based on a LEGO toy collection – it features an original LEGO character, along with an original story; this puts the game in a unique spot – it’s an original story, so it should put the skills of story writers at WB and TT Fusion to test.

WB plans to release the game on the four new platforms – PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo’s Switch – by Spring 2017. The game will be distributed via Steam for PC – as the LEGO games are.
If you want to check out the existing LEGO games, here’s the link for all of the LEGO games available right now on Xbox One, and here’s the link for all the LEGO games available right now on PC via Steam.
Hopefully, the next in line to be released on more platforms is LEGO Dimensions.
LEGO Dimensions features characters from shows such as Doctor Who, The Simpsons, Scooby Doo, and movies like The Wizard of Oz, Ghostbusters, Back to the Future, The Lord of the Rings, Jurassic World and so much more; it is an amalgamation of pop culture – and it is good.
