Nintendo has put out the product page for LEGO City: Undercover for the Switch and there are some new details about the game. As reported before, this remastered version is not exactly a straight port and there is new information about it that supports the claim.
If you look at the game details, it states that it will now have two player co-op which is what fans wanted from the first game. It does not say online co-op so we’ll still have to see about that. That also takes us to the gameplay since, it doesn’t say if the co-op is in the Story Mode or in Free Roam. If it’s in the Story Mode, there might be changes to the game play since you don’t want both players doing the same puzzles.
At the very bottom of the product overview section, you can see that it states there will be secret Nintendo cameos for this version of LEGO City: Undercover. There were Nintendo cameos in the original game but hopefully we’ll see something different. Fans would definitely want to see minifigure characters but we’ll see if that happens or not.
There’s no word yet on the release date of LEGO City: Undercover although Amazon has it listed as April 30 but that could just be a placeholder. LEGO City: Undercover will also be released on PlayStation 4, XBox One, and on Steam.
