Pinch me because I must be dreaming. The incredible detective game L.A. Noire is coming to Switch, Rockstar said today, blowing my mind and every other Nintendo fan out there. It’s also coming to PS4, Xbox One and HTC Vive. The new version of the game will be out on November 14th.
The console ports will feature the entire game while the HTC Vive version will only feature seven different cases. The Switch version will have a “Joycon mode” and a touch screen controls, while the Xbox One and PS4 version will have shiny new graphics.
Here’s the full release:
L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files for HTC Vive delivers seven of the original engrossing, self-contained cases from LA Noire rebuilt specifically for virtual reality, blending breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience.
L.A. Noire for the Nintendo Switch features the complete original game and all additional downloadable content, with specific enhancements including a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble and new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work.
L.A. Noire for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One delivers the complete original game and all additional downloadable content with a range of technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity, including enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures and more. L.A. Noire plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X, capturing the grit and grime of the City of Angels like never before.
L.A. Noire was one of my favorite games of 2011 and I’ll be giving it another go on the road with the Switch version come November. This game went through development hell, and developer, Team Bondi, shut down because of it which is a real shame.
This is a great video game.
