The Nintendo Switch is getting more and more games and already they have over 200 games confirmed to be released for the device. The next game in the series is a detective game called L.A. Noire which comes out on November 14, 2017.
The game is based on real crimes from 1947 Los Angeles, which is one of the most corrupt and violent times in Los Angeles’ history. L.A. Noire lets players search for clues, find and interrogate suspects and bringing justice to the city. L.A. Noire originally released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC back in 2011, but Rockstar decided they wanted to add it to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. These are scheduled to be released at the same time as the Switch.
Some of the real crimes that are featured in the game are The Red Lipstick Murder and A Marriage Made In Heaven. Team Bondi researched hundreds of original articles reported in the newspapers of when crimes like these happened so that elements of the real-life case will be reflected in the game.
Each case is located at different crime desks. There are five desks and they are based on different types of crimes which are Arson, Vice, Patrol, Homicide, and Traffic. The two examples of real-life crimes in the game that are listed above can be found at the Homicide and Traffic desk.
L.A. Noire for the Nintendo Switch will contain the original game, all additional downloadable content, with specific enhancements including a Joy-Con™ mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble and a wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touchscreen controls for portable detective work. All of this information and more is available on their website.
The game is rated at M for Mature and has a warning for players wanting to purchase the game on the Nintendo Eshop, calling it ‘A dark and violent crime thriller’. The game is currently priced at $49.99/£44.99 on the Nintendo Store for the Switch.
