This week’s Nintendo Download builds a LEGO City

The relaunched LEGO City Undercover has officially hit the Nintendo Switch, along with a pair of Wii U Virtual Console releases.

Going Undercover

This is the second go-around for LEGO City Undercover, which for some reason has been brought back to life by Warner Bros and Traveller’s Tales. The game made something of an impact on the Wii U when it arrived close to the launch of that machine, and now it’s back for the Switch (and Xbox One and PS4 too).

So what’s changed? Well having never played the original, I’m not all that sure what’s new and what’s not. There is two player co-op this time though, which feels like an addition. And according to the press release, there are 20 districts in the city to explore, and plenty to do. So if you missed it, it seems like a pretty cool little open-world title.

Also on the Switch this week is Alpha Mission II from the Neo Geo, and the indie title – Vroom in the Night Sky. The Wii U meanwhile, gets two TG-16 games with Super Star Soldier and World Sports Competition.

Not a bad week overall. Scroll down for the full story.
