New LEGO City Undercover screenshots

See more of one of the biggest Wii U games of 2013

A new LEGO City Undercover was premiered during Nintendo Direct this week and now we have a fresh batch of screenshots for the most exciting LEGO games in years.

For whileLEGO Harry Potter, Lord Of The Rings and Batman are all well and good, it's nice to see the LEGO series branching out with this tongue in cheek take on open world games like Grand Theft Auto.

You play as Chase McCain, an undercover detective who, armed with clever disguises, has to look for clues in a bid to stop the fiendish Rex Fury and end his crime wave in LEGO City.

Rex Fury has escaped his prison Albatross Island but Chase McCain can use his scanning skills on the Wii U GamePad to find super bricks which he can use to build a boat to take him to the island.

To get into the prison, McCain must use his disguises.

The LEGO City Undercover UK release date will fall in early 2013.

    I like how you can buy a lego kit which has a code on the number plate of a vehicle, which lets you access a secret mission. Having said that, I probably wont get the Lego kit anyway. The game's looking pretty good, I only wish it could've been a launch game then I'd have been EVEN happier on Wii U launch day!

    LEGO... after gaming, gardening and sport, one of my fave pastimes... I normally check out every LEGO game, in fact, the only 2 to date I haven't checked out is Batman 2 (looks amazing) and LOTR (again, fantastic!), so with Undercover coming exclusively to Nintendo, I have to check this out, however, with funds running low for WiiU, I need more 3DS news, Nintendo!
