The first was previously released on March 18, 2013 as a Wii U exclusive. LEGO City Undercover is a “comedic sandbox-style action-adventure video game developed by TT Fusion for the Wii U.” This LEGO title will be released for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC sometime this Spring. Here’s a brief description from the Wii U version:
Assume the identity of undercover officer Chase McCain and put a stop to the fiendish Rex Fury and his crime wave. Use your Wii U GamePad controller to keep your finger on the pulse of the city, and don a host of disguises to infiltrate every corner of the bustling city as you track down your foes.”
The next LEGO game being planned for the Switch lineup is LEGO Worlds, an open-world sandbox creation game providing players with a Minecraft-esque experience. Players have full disposal of the creativity that comes with LEGO building, but in a digital format. To build up your anticipation, here’s a lovely description:
LEGO Worlds is an open environment of procedurally-generated Worlds made entirely of LEGO bricks which you can freely manipulate and dynamically populate with LEGO models. Create anything you can imagine, one brick at a time, or use large-scale landscaping tools to create vast mountain ranges and dot your world with tropical islands. Drop in prefabricated structures to build and customize any world to your liking. Explore using helicopters, dragons, motorbikes or even gorillas and unlock treasures that enhance your gameplay. Watch your creations come to life through characters and creatures that interact with you and each other in unexpected ways. In LEGO Worlds, anything is possible!”
LEGO Worlds is set to release February 21 of this year. It will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and the Nintendo Switch. Well, after the Switch releases on March 3, of course. It’s almost here!
We are excited to see what other LEGO games may become available for the Nintendo Switch in the future, but for now, what do you think of these two for starters?
