Home / Business / Consoles / NINTENDO: LEGO does GTA on Wii U


Warner Bros has revealed the first details about LEGO City Undercover for Wii U – and there’s a whiff of Grand Theft Auto about it.

Nintendo showed the first trailer for the game during it’s E3 Press Conference, showing what appeared to be an open world LEGO title in which players solve crimes. It was previously known as LEGO City Stories.

LEGO City Undercover uses the Wii U GamePad to display an interactive map of the city, as well as deliver missions and allow players to contact other characters.

The gameplay looks reminiscent of the usual Traveller’s Tales titles, with a mix of platforming, driving and character-specific abilities.

A companion title is in development for 3DS.
