LEGO CITY Undercover removed from the 3DS and Wii U eShops

Hate to see you LEGO

Just a few weeks back, we shared news of LEGO City: Undercover (Wii U) and LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins (3DS) being removed from their respective eShops in Japan. Looks like that was a hint of what's to come, as the same two titles have now been removed from eShops outside of Japan as well. That leaves just the Switch version of LEGO City Undercover up for grabs.

ESRB rating for Switch version of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes pops up

That's some Marvelous news!

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 made its way to Switch, but the original never did. That game has remained on Wii U up to this point, but it looks like a Switch port might be in the works.

The ESRB has just added a listing for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes on Switch to their site. Neither publisher or developer have mentioned any possibilities of this port, so it looks like the ESRB may have jumped the gun on this one. While we wait for official confirmation, you can check out a quick recap on the game below.

LEGO® Marvel™ Super Heroes features an original story crossing the entire Marvel Universe. Players take control of Iron Man, Spider-Man, the Hulk, Captain America, Wolverine and many more Marvel characters as they unite to stop Loki and a host of other Marvel villains from assembling a super-weapon capable of destroying the world.

TT Games working to "benchmark and optimize" LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on Switch, are "really pleased" with the results

Looks good, this one does

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is most likely going to be a big hit on Switch, and TT Games knows the potential audience for the platform is huge. That's why they want to make sure they do the best they can with the Switch version. In an interview with NintendoEverything, TT Games creative leads Arthur Parsons talks about the continuing work on the Switch version, and where they're at right now.

In terms of the actual figures, we’re going to continue to benchmark and optimize. We’ll look at it more. Right now today we’re happy with what we’ve shown, and it looks good. We’re really pleased. And part of it was gauging, is this going to stand up when people see it for the first time? Are they going to go, “Oh, this doesn’t look so great.” Or are they going to go, “Woah”? And it was definitely the latter. Every time we’ve shown it, people have gone, “Wow, this is a big step up for LEGO games.” And we’re like, “Great, so that’s the benchmark for the visuals.” Let’s make sure we can make that perform. And we think we certainly can. But first, let’s make sure that this is the level that people expect from a next-generation LEGO game.

TT Games shares their love for Switch, says LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga runs like a dream on the platform

Big fans of Switch

TT Games has a very long history with Nintendo platforms, and they're continuing that line with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on Switch. In a NintendoEverything interview, TT Games' James Burgon and Arthur Parsons talk about their work on the Switch version of the game, as well as the Switch in general. Check out what they had to say below.

James Burgon: “It’s been really good actually. The first build that we had on Switch ran like a dream, so it’s great. With the new technology, we started off and had that in mind because Switch is one of our biggest platforms actually in the US, so we really want to do it justice on that platform.”

Arthur Parsons: “We love Switch. We love Nintendo. TT loves Nintendo, right? If you go back to the original Star Wars games with the Complete Saga which is one of the first game that I worked on back in 2006 – those games and Indy 1, and that kind of stuff, they were on Wii and then the Wii U. TT has been really good about doing the same game across all platforms without having to make it so much worse because we’ve been doing this for a long, long time. So the Switch, that’s not a challenge for us. Yeah there’s different technical hardware and software things with all consoles, but we work hard to make sure the experience is as good as it can be on all platforms including Switch.”
