It’s amazing that the Nintendo Switch came out just this year and already there’s over 500 games in the works right now that can be played on the console either through physical cartridges or digital downloads via the Nintendo eShop.
A game that’s gotten quite a few people excited is the anticipated detective game L.A. Noire.
L.A. Noire for the Switch will be out in North America tomorrow, the 14th. It’s an action and adventure game that places the player in the role of a hardened detective that solves murders. It’s rated M for Mature, a rating that Nintendo generally doesn’t deal with considering family-friendly the company is.
While any new game for the Switch is exciting, I’m unsure about this one. Rachel and I have the XBox 360 version of the game and… we didn’t get too far. We honestly bought it because, at the time, we were itching for a new detective-like series after having gotten hooked on the Ace Attorney franchise. L.A. Noire was definitely grittier than Ace Attorney, and we missed the epic music and characters from the latter series. Considering we didn’t use the XBox 360 too often, we also probably weren’t used to the controls either.
However, that was a couple of years ago. Perhaps this time around, if we have a little extra money to splurge, we’ll try picking up L.A. Noire again for our shiny Switch.
What about you? Is L.A. Noire something you’re interested in? Did you ever play an earlier version of the game?
