The Switch version, meanwhile, will feature optional motion and gyropscopic controls, a wide-angle over-the-shoulder camera, and touch screen controls for portable play. The PS4 and Xbox One versions will feature a host of visual improvements, with the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X both supporting 4K. This will also notably be Rockstar's first game to hit the new Nintendo hybrid console.
L.A. Noire was released in 2011 to critical acclaim with a Windows version being released later that year. Much of the game was spent determining whether or not people were lying based on speech patterns and facial recognition, or engaging in verbal swordfighting with your colleagues.
L.A. Noire for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is also the complete version with previously released DLC. The VR release will be exclusive to the HTC Vive and is now only slated to have seven of the game's cases rebuilt for a VR experience. Releasing for PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, the upgrade will allow current gen gamers to experience this classic game in all its original glory.
The initial rumours concerned a remaster of L.A. Noire, which has indeed turned out to be the case.
L.A. Noire follows Cole Phelps, a decorated veteran who has recently become a detective in 1940's Los Angeles. But the game still seems like a ball, so colour us surprised to hear that LA Noire is coming to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch (!). That opens the possibility, remote though it may be, for bigger Rockstar titles to come to the Switch in future - in the same way it supported the PSP with GTA: Vice City Stories.
If you were hoping this news was about a sequel to L.A. Noire you're going to be disappointed.
The price for the game has also been revealed for the European version and it is slightly expensive on the Switch even though there is no Ultra HD version of the game.
