E3 2012: Lego City Undercover Is Like GTA Without The Prostitutes, Blood And Drugs
A game no one really seen coming was Lego City Undercover for the Wii U. It was briefly hinted at in passing during Nintendo's E3 2011 conference but from then on it had gone black. Today, however, Warner Bros and Nintendo gave gamers a detailed look at the upcoming open-world action adventure title.
Technically, Lego City Undercover is closer to the original True Crime: Streets of LA than it is Grand Theft Auto. Still, the general gist is that there's an open world full of mayhem for players to dive into, including fighting, dynamic chase sequences, vehicles, customization, going undercover and plenty more. The video does an excellent job of highlighting both the gameplay and the story premise surrounding game.
I'm sure fans of open-world titles looking for something fun for the whole family are also pretty excited. We oftentimes don't get open-world games that don't include stripper-nuns with guns, or crack-dealing midgets with shotguns, or zombie-vampire car thieves who are always trying to pick up prostitutes. It's a nice bit of a change to see a game focus more-so on the fun side of the open-world experience.
The game is being designed by TT Games, the same folk who designed many other Lego titles, so at least we know the property is in good news. Lego City Undercover is due out exclusively for the Wii U. Need to learn more? Feel free to visit the Official Website.
