LA Noire Confirmed for the Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, and VR
Get ready to don that detective hat once more because Rockstar Games has officially confirmed that the 2011 game LA Noire will be making its way to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch. Also announced is that a VR edition of the game will also be made available.
The game itself will include all of the DLC, except for the Switch edition. For those purchasing LA Noire on the Nintendo console, only some of the expansion will be included but there will be perks to playing on the newer console. With the Joy-Con technology, LA Noire will utilize the HD rumble mechanics, as well as motion specific controls and customizable adjustments specific to the individual player. Not bad, considering this is the first Rockstar has seen a Nintendo port to one of their titles.
For those looking to play on the Sony and Microsoft platforms, the base game will be available in 1080p. The latest PS4 Pro and Xbox One X aren’t left out either; both will see 4K boosts to the overall crime title.
It’s a good time to pick up an HTC Vive VR headset as well – not only did the top of the line unit receive a permanent $200 price drop, but will also be the home of the VR support for the Rockstar re-release. Under the name of L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, several particular cases, working alongside the main game, will available for VR playability specifically.
The original game that allowed players to step inside the fancy shoes of detective Cole Phelps was originally planned for a sequel, but after the development studio closed; the LA Noire franchise never saw its next step. Would you be excited to see the story continue? Are you excited the Switch is getting even more developers into their line-up?
