As Destructoid reports, L.A. Noire's physical cartridges are slightly more expensive to produce than discs, leading Rockstar Games to sell L.A. Noire for an extra $10. Well, it seems that Rockstar will release the L.A. Noire for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch consoles.
Recently, L.A. Noire announcement was made for HTC Vive, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. For those playing in handheld mode, new contextual touch screen controls have also been added for this edition.
As for the United States, L.A. Noire will cost $39.99 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but the same title will cost $49.99 on Nintendo Switch in retail format.
This updated version of the 2011 game will be released on November 14 across all announced systems.
Set against the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940s Los Angeles, L.A. Noire is the story of decorated war veteran and newly minted detective Cole Phelps as he investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes. The PS4 and Xbox One are specifically said to come packing "technical enhancements for greater visual fidelity and authenticity, including enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high resolution textures and more".
L.A. Noire's remaster was rumoured since June, but now it's a reality.
LA Noire was developed by Australian studio Team Bondi.
The video game company is expected to provide more details on the new versions of the game in the coming weeks. I expect Nintendo and Rockstar Games to unveil full list of exclusive gameplay features that L.A Noire will support on Nintendo Switch closer to the game's release. In the wake of the game's debut, allegations arose about what caused the game's seven-year development process.
