LA Noire coming to Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch

The Switch version, meanwhile, will feature optional motion and gyropscopic controls, a wide-angle over-the-shoulder camera, and touch screen controls for portable play. Nevertheless, Rockstar's still invested in the game and announced today that it's now being ported to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch with new missions to boot. Because there's a VR experience in the works with the name "L.A. Noire: VR Case Files".

LA Noire originally launched for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in May 2011, before arriving on PC in November of the same year.

What's also interesting is the support for the Nintendo Switch, given L.A. Noire is really not the sort of family-friendly entertainment you'd normally expect on the system. The title used sophisticated facial capture technology to allow the characters to have more realistic facial movement, able to express emotions and give performances like real actors.

L.A. Noire is being remastered for current generation consoles this fall, with enhancements in-store for Xbox One X. This includes enhanced lighting, new camera angles, and high-resolution textures running at 1080p on PS4 and Xbox One. The re-released version of LA Noire will be launching on November 14th for all three platforms.

LA Noire for PS4 and Xbox One comes with the full version of the original game and all DLC, along with expected updates such as better graphics. What's new? What's enhanced, and what will be different about the Nintendo Switch version?

The VR version is more of a spin-off, called L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files. These two consoles will have the complete version of the game, and all of its DLC contents. Here's hoping that L.A. Noire gets enough traction to guarantee a sequel because this game is one that deserves it.
