While LEGO City Undercover won’t be available on launch day, we’re hopeful to see it hit the stores sometime later this year. Lego City Undercover is an open world, GTA-styled adventure game set in a fictional Lego city, where players assume the role of Chase McCain, who is out to capture a gang of bank robbers.

Lego City Undercover is an exclusive Wii U title and is published by Nintendo. It was previously known as “LEGO City Stories”. It’s developed by TT Games, who have a lot of experience when it comes to the LEGO game franchise: they’ve made a whopping 15 LEGO based games since 2005.

There’s also a sweet trailer of the game.

        How nice of you to take a break from drinking tea and eating crumpets to post here Nintedward. Your replys are most appreciated.

        • Nintedward.

          I am drinking tea and eating toast right now , lol .
          It’s not pretentious to drink tea or eat crumpets .

          Did you know over 5 trillion cups of tea are consumed in England every day ??? and over 10 trillion crumpets .

          • Nintedward.

            In England EVERYBODY drinks tea ALL day , lol . Its a mild caffiene boost much more sophisticated to that of your power house American coffee beans πŸ˜› . Or should I say ”cowooooorfeee”

          • ZombieGuns

            Those numbers don’t surprise me.

          • Neonridr

            5 trillion every day huh? πŸ˜›

          • ZombieGuns

            I always imagine you Brits like to drink your tea like Capt. Picard, a hot cup of Earl Grey or something. I don’t often drink tea but when I do it’s Iced Tea in a 24 ounce can.

          • NintendoGator

            Whats the #1 best selling tea in England Nintedward??

          • Nintedward.

            @Nintendo gater = Tetley’s tea or PG tips or Typhoo .

      • Nintenlord

        Just imagine lego zelda or lego metroid :0

        • LUCIFER

          Actually nintendo has made some awful games like the virtual boy library or metrod m. This lego game is sad i mena wii is suppose to be a hardcore gaming machine. No wonder rockstar is scared to bring gta to the wiiu yhey think its to mature for nintendo fans. I think lego starwars was good and should have beenthe end ofthe series. I dont see the appeal of legos its for kids and you can play legos in real life thats like playing a mowing simulator but alas ya want to see family games than look at microsoft its a family freandly machine at the same time its hardcore with great graphics and thats beating sony. Thats how you market a system folks. Reggie take notes no more horrendous metriod m

            Do you know how to use a keyboard?

          • Mechadestroyah

            Nintendo’s games aren’t designed for kids they are designed to be fun. If you want to limit to not playing a game for the sake of it being child friendly then you are missing out and for no good reason. Games are made to be fun not for the themes they portray. If you don’t find Nintendo game to be fun then I can understand that, but there is no reason to try to find a way to insult others tastes just because something isn’t right for you.

          • MujuranoKamen

            He never said Nintendo was perfect and what has Other M got to do with this?

      • logan7699

        Zelda lego

        • roedburn

          There is a possibility that they could start producing Legend of Zelda Lego Sets in the future.

      • BananaPwnz

        Lego Mario bros
        Legend of Zelda Lego’s in time
        Lego Kirby
        or even a Pokemon Lego game!
        Oh the possibilities…

    • goginho

      yea, in the trailer you see the guy go through a pipe from Mario i believe.

      • SteampunkJedi

        And there’s a few Zelda sounds, too.

    • Just nintendo

      Lego city is best lego game.
      i love lego characters and i so like open world games SO i love LEGO city under cover.Wii U i cant wait for you i will buy wii U and PLAY it.

      • frank

        Also while its got many different people interested, it will probably be something that younger gamers can play. I know my 6 year old brother wants it as well as nintendo land, mario bros u, and skylanders giants, so while he probably won’t be able to hold the gamepad easily, he’ll still have some games that he can play.

        • Herox95

          Actually, your ‘lil bro can use the Wii U Pro Controller.

  • Smitty

    After seeing clips of this game I am slightly worried. The frame rate was all over and it had screen tearing, which is a huge shame because up until seeing these issues I was looking forward to playing it. I hope they smooth it out for release :-(.

    • dojo

      im a sure they will

    • flashdrive

      this game hasn’t been released yet, it should be fixed by then.
      p.s. the same goes with sonic racing.

      • Smitty

        Yeh I saw that it had issues too, loving how you get downvoted for blatant observations… not even opinions they were observations asin anyone can see them by just watching the clips!

    • Nintenlord

      Is the weak player in the 3ds the videos looks amaising

    • Macarony64

      i have see videos of the game in my 3ds and the games run smoth maybe is the video player that you use

  • Mike

    A GTA LEGO game is just such a great idea. Kids can play it because there is no gore, and adults can enjoy it because it’s got a lot of stuff to do, and the gameplay is just generally improved for the last few LEGO games.

    • Nintedward.

      Nintendo’s philosophy in a nut shel πŸ™‚ .

      • Zeta

        yep, Nintendo is just great at making great games which can appeal to practically any age, when i was younger my aunt used to play Mario more than the owner of the SNES, i mean everyday i would wake up to the mario theme, same thing applies to all their great games, Metroid even is okay for the younger ones if they can take the slight occasional scare.

        • Nintedward.

          I agree bro , except I would like to see some one less than the age of 15 finish metroid prime trilogy without a guide πŸ˜› . Even zelda is rock solid without a guide πŸ™‚ .

          The funny thing is sony fans will say ”hur durrr I finished ocarina and skyward sword in 35 hours durp didily durpa durr” when the truth is they just used a big ol guide :/ .

          Ocarina masterquest without a guide , all skulltulas and heart pieces .
          Boy oh boy took me about 70 hours , lol . Including time spent on fishing, riding epona and all the glorious mini games πŸ™‚ .

  • ocarinaoftime

    Saints sleeping auto: Lego city

    Hope you know what I mean and I hope it is like that, it’ll be one of the funniest games on the wiiu launch window

    • ocarinaoftime

      Fun* stupid auto correct.

  • Benjaminkno

    I wasn’t crazy about any of the Lego games. I didn’t play Batman, but this looks like the best of the series.

    • Benjaminknows

      How about you play Batman Arkham City Armoured Edition? That’s Wii U for you!

  • Bobsingh

    I am getting this!

  • Swic11

    I really want this game, kinda sad its not available on launch day, but I will get it eventually

  • ssb4

    another game that brings casuals and core gamers together. also nice to see that LUCIFER is gone. Hopefully SONY LOVER BOY will stay away also.

    • goginho

      Sshhh ..don’t mention their names anymore, you might jinx it LoL

      • ssb4


    • Swic11

      All your doing it baiting them to return and be annoying, leave it alone

    • Drawin

      If they don’t get any attention, they won’t find a need to come here. πŸ˜‰

      • Benjaminknows

        Yup, at least I’m inviting TheRatedD to our Forums so we can *psst, smash him up and slap him all around* say hi to him.

  • Mylochek

    It’s great to see games that bring both sides together like ssb4 just stated. Casual gamers, core gamers, the one thing that is permanent in both…both sides are gamers πŸ™‚ and it’s great to have games for both, makes things so much more fun πŸ™‚

    • ZombieGuns

      Well said Mylochek, my thoughts exactly.

  • Nintendo Power of Canada/USA

    Let’s hope that SONY LOVER BOY is gone and all Sony and Microsoft trolls gone too

    • CheckItNow12

      Shh…. Don’t attact them!

      • H

        Meh. I’m inviting TheRatedD to our Forums so we can *psst, smash him up and slap him all around* say hi to him.

  • D2K

    I don’t why but this game seems to have more jaggies and grainies than it should. It’s not a problem, but it is noticeable.

    • Swic11

      I saw that on the screen with the helicopter, but we have to remember its Lego, it’s all square jagged blocks lol

  • Paul

    day one game for me if its @ launch and if not will wait later down the line when its released

  • 16der

    Except for Ninjago Masters of Spinjiztu, im not into Lego games,but i’ll have to say that this game is impressive.

    • ZombieGuns

      Same here 16der. If it gets great reviews then i’ll try it out.

  • GirlGamer

    Oh god, my favourite wii u game so far! The screen shots are Excellent

  • Masked Informer

    I am disappointed that Wii U daily staff did not post the article on Unity saying the Wii U was capable of DirectX 11.

    I sent you the article. Yet you ignore such intriguing news.

    • Nintenlord

      i saw the article it was a interview whit unity president or vice president

    • Nintedward.

      Please post a link !! ^^

      • NintendoGator

        Whats the link?????????????/

  • SteampunkJedi

    I’ll be getting this game for sure. I love Lego video games.

  • Jc

    Now this is why I love wii u daily because they give us updates everyday πŸ™‚

  • Elite

    This will probably be the first lego game i buy and not rent rofl. Looks fing fantastic.

  • Cynthia

    lego city is badass you could go and explore the city and you could ride,cars,helicopter and more stuf i cannot what for the wii u

  • Drawin

    Can you just imagine, if this was the start of some Nintendo based Lego games? ;o


    • Neonridr

      Lego Legend of Zelda anyone?? πŸ˜€

      • On The Fence

        They already did that on Minecraft.

      • H


  • Maverick-Hunter

    Hahaha suck it minecraft

  • Master Awesomeness

    doesn’t look very lego-ish, except maybe for vehicles.

  • Xblade13

    LEGOs + Nintendo = EPIC!

  • On The Fence

    Ha, this is the closest Wii U owners will ever get to playing GTA V so enjoy it.

    P.S It’s f#$%ing lego, do you really think you’ll be able steal, maime and blow s#$t up all with a PG rating it’s about as likely as Rare saying “f##k Microsoft lets make Donkey Kong U” it just won’t happen.

    • Neonridr

      because you know for sure that GTA V will never come to the Wii U?

      • On The Fence

        Unless Nintendo step in to assist with financing and develpment (Bayoneta 2) no.

        • Collected

          Nonsense, the people at Activision, tecmo Koei, Gearbox, etc all seem to want to develop games for the Wii U. Why should Rocksteady be different if they should see a perfectly good system that could sell their product/game.

          • On The Fence

            Because of a little game called Manhunt 2 the firestorm of bad publicity caused my motion controlled murder had parents up in arms it was hugely damaging to rockstar’s image so I wouldn’t blame them for wanting to stay as far away from Nintendo as possible.

  • Johny

    the game looks actually pretty DARN neat ! πŸ˜€
    but i wouldnt praise TT for releasing so many lego games… theres TOO many of them ! .. and theyre all basicly the same…
    Lego Star wars was VERY VERY cool and a really good game… but then they just started milking it cuz and they got money… but the lego games were worse with every released..
    but yea… could be just my opinion… thats how i see it

    • MujuraNoKamen

      This one does look pretty amazing though, new ideas, cool gameplay, tons of humour, and it combines an open-world GTA style game with Lego! This and Pikmin 3 are my most anticipated Wii U games so far (well, out of the ones that have been confirmed anyway, I’m anxious to hear news of Zelda Wii U, a New Metroid and I like the idea of a new Starfox)

  • TheBoldman67

    When I first saw the name Chase McCain I thought the old presidential candidate had a kid made out of LEGOs.

  • Legogamersdad

    I really want to know if there is any two player in this at all? Some reports say yes and others no. Does anyone know as I have two boys who want to play this together!!

  • MujuraNoKamen

    AWWW how long do I have to wait for this piece of epicness?!
