L.A. Noire brought 1940s detective adventures to the Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC back in 2011 to moderate success. Now, six years later, publisher Rockstar Games is bringing the game to current systems.
This will include the Playstation 4 and Xbox One, with enhanced visuals and 4K support on the Playstation 4 Pro and Xbox One X. The game will also launch on the Nintendo Switch with much of the same additions as the other releases.
However, Rockstar has gone the extra mile to bring in new features based around the Switch’s capabilities. L.A. Noire will feature motion controls, HD rumble, “contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work” and new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles.
A version of the game for the HTC Vive platform has also been announced titled L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files. Rockstar is covering all bases with the current release.
Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games, said:
We’re excited to bring L.A. Noire’s unique mix of real detective work, classic Hollywood atmosphere and thrilling action to these new platforms. Now with a choice of spectacular virtual reality, stunning 4K, or the freedom of portable play, these enhanced versions are a perfect opportunity for players to experience this richly detailed world in a whole new way.
