LEGO City Undercover 3DS release date confirmed

You can buy the prequel to LEGO City Unercover next month

Nintendo have confirmed the LEGO City Undercover 3DS UK release date. LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins will go on sale on 26 April, nearly a month after LEGO City Undercover.

LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins is a prequel to LEGO City Undercover as you discover how Chase McCain became a top cop in LEGO City. LEGO City Undercover villain Rex Fury also stars in the 3DS version as the crime kingpin and it's your job to put him behind bars. Of course, in the Wii U game, he has escaped and you have to put him back in prison.

You begin as a rookie cop on McCain's first adventure in LEGO City, learning the basics of police work but, as in the Wii U game, you'll still be able to wear special costumes to disguise yourself and earn special skills that will help you solve missions and fight crime.

In the 3DS version, the touchscreen becomes your scanner and you can move your 3DS to analyse the LEGO City environment for audio or visual clues.

Are you going to buy LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins on 3DS?

    Agree with angesthebull.

    Also really want the Wii U version but the constant change in Rayman Legends release date has put me off getting one.

    Considering most of the Lego games on 3DS have pretty rubbish,I think I'll wait till the reviews.

    I'm getting a WiiU this summer and in preperation for Lego City Undercover,I'll probably get this if it gets a bronze award or higher.

    I've heard nothing but horror stories about the 3DS lego games, and I felt that the Lego LOTR demo was abysmal.

    I will not be purchasing this.

    I personally wont be getting the game as I see no reason why there needs to be a Lego City Undercover on the 3DS
