LA Noire

Sure, we’ve seen LA Noire before, but not like this. The game’s been remastered for all consoles and optimized specifically for the Switch. According to a press release, Nintendo’s version will include contextual touchscreen controls. Additionally, there will be a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic controls and HD Rumble, leading to new over-the-shoulder camera angles. You can catch it all in the new Nintendo Switch trailer below.

Set amid the post-war boom of Hollywood’s Golden Age, L.A. Noire follows newly-minted officer Cole Phelps as he embarks on a desperate search for truth in a city where everyone has something to hide. The remastered version for the Nintendo Switch comes with the original game and all DLC content. Find it in the Nintendo eShop on November 14th.
