Rockstar Games announces new version of L.A. Noire for Switch, out on November 14

Posted on September 7, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

L.A. Noire is coming to Switch, Rockstar Games has announced. System owners will be able to purchase the game on November 14. L.A. Noire originally debuted in 2011.

Here’s an overview:

L.A. Noire takes place in the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles as decorated veteran and newly minted detective, Cole Phelps investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes. Each successfully solved case brings Phelps greater success, but also brings him closer to the dark criminal heart of post-war L.A. The game was an Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival for its cinematic approach to gameplay and narrative.

Utilizing a unique type of facial capture technology called MotionScan, L.A. Noire breathes unprecedented life into character performances, creating brand new gameplay out of the art of interrogation.

L.A. Noire for Switch includes the complete original game and all additional DLC. Also included is a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic and gesture-based controls, HD Rumble, new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, and contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work.

    Finally they announce this game hearing rumors since January and then again in June I am glad this was true.

    This is for sure a purchase for me!! I never played it but the game looks like a lot of fun

  • Blanco8x8

    Whaaa! Omg! I thought this game will never see the light again. Rockstar you are awesome!

  • Wanderlei

    It is good game but I wonder why this game and not just port over GTA5. Surely same amount of work but would sell much more.

    • Leonel

      Would be cool to see GTA 5 but its great to see that we are getting something from rockstar and who knows maybe we will get way more support if this does well on switch

    • jimmy

      Most likely because they’re rereleasing it on all platforms, the other two has enhanced visuals while the switch version has touch and motion controls

    • Thomas_NE

      Portable HD GTA would be amazing. This is still pretty cool though.

    • Because they’re remastering this one for other consoles at the same time.

    • I am pretty sure they considered it but right now the timing of releasing a multiplatform AAA game at the same time of other platforms gives more confidence to Nintendo Costumers.
      Dont get surprised if they annouce GTAV port for the next year


  • Exposer

    So same case as XV2 buy this if you want more Rockstar support.

    • Triforce of the Gods

      It’s a port that’s getting a Switch version day and date with PS4/XB1 ports, so that certainly makes me more likely to pick it up.

      • Xavier Lopez Chabelo

        Just remember, it’s already confirmed that only the PS4/ONE version Will have new graphics. On the other Hand, the Switch will be the original game but with new functions designed for the Switch

        • Indielink

          Is it 100% confirmed that the visuals on Switch will be the same as last gen? The facial animation was incredible for its time but I played it last year and visually it doesn’t hold up super well.

          • KnightWonder

            It hasn’t been confirmed yet.

        • KnickKnackMyWack

          Those graphical updates probably won’t boil down to much more than 4k resolution though.

  • Jonathan Cromwell


  • Roto Prime


  • Shonenfan

    Yes! enjoyed this game so much! But now its portable? Instant buy

  • Stuart


  • Tlink7

    Inb4 GTA V Switch 😀
    And you know the console is doing well if even Rockstar is releasing a game on a Nintendo machine

  • Vinicius

    This was unexpected, but not unwelcome.

    I know there were rumors, but I was expecting them to be wrong.

    Really liked the game, and never played the DLC, probably gonna get.

    • Dark Rain

      A surprise to be sure but a welcome one.

  • Metallox

    Never played the game, so this might be my chance, I guess.

    • jimmy

      Same, I’m curious about the price though

      • TDude73

        Who the hell cares about the price? Just buy the game already!

        • jimmy

          What if the game is $99?

          • TDude73

            That’s placeholder’s price… not finalized.

          • jimmy

            Who’s talking sbout placeholders?

    • KnickKnackMyWack

      It’s a decent title. It’s very Ace Attorney X Grand Theft Auto in the 1940’s.

  • Fernando Silva

    Whaaaaaaaaat! This took me by the pants!

  • Padre

    PHYSICAL?! Pleaseeeee….

    • TDude73

      No worries… Take Two knows they’re making a physical version as well as the digital download… thus, it’s third party.

    • Roto Prime

      Brother!! Is that you?!!!!

  • Busterblade

    I don’t see what all that excitement is for. Must be getting old.

  • awng782

    I have heard of this rumor since January of this year. Glad to see it come true.

  • Rodrigo Coelho Costa Junior

    wow, tha’s surprising

  • Mr Objection

    So, switch is having Rockstar support…


  • Aiddon

    Huh, that came right out of nowhere. A Red Dead Redemption port would be welcome

  • Paddy Alfan

    Never before I thought I can play LA noise on handheld. Next stop , red dead!
    But I wonder how much space this one took though. All the console quality games eats the storage quite fast.

  • Zeebor

    Neat. Good job Take-Two.

  • Luke WalkingMoonTree

    Day One baby

  • Everton Toledo de Moraes

    Great game!

  • Petri

    I hope it’s not 60€ game.
    Not that its not fully worth it, but I already have it on PC and there are many games releasing Oct-Nov already.

  • TruExtent

    I have a cheap PS3 copy that I snagged a while back. I might trade that and get this new Switch version since I didn’t play too much yet. I only tried the opening mission. I want to play more and on the Switch would be great! What’s the pricing gonna be?

  • Exy

    More ports, more power.

  • TDude73

    I hope that each and every Switch owner reserve their copy of LA Noire for Nintendo Switch to support Take Two. If it’s successful, there could be a possibility they will continue to bring more titles to the Switch in the future.

  • Jacob Groves

    Day one buy for Switch version. I enjoyed Xbox 360 version back in 2011. 😀

    Thank you Rockstar Games, now please bringing RDR 2, GTA 6, Bully 2 etc…. coming to Switch. 🙂

    Love you Rockstar Games for step up onto Nintendo platform this time once again. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • MajoraMan28

    Uhhh, the hype is real here, but did you guys notice that the Switch version is actually the PS3 + DLC?
    It has basically none of the visual enhancements whatsoever

    • ben

      where are the videos?

      • MajoraMan28

        GameXplain is also citing that the Switch won’t have visual enhancements.

        • ben

          I see. Well, I mean it is still pretty good if it runs with a good frame rate.

          • MajoraMan28

            It’s a subpar look, considering today’s standards. The Wii U had overall games with better graphical fidelity.
            People are happy here over breadcrumbs

          • Gemmol Lewis

            more for switch controls……not breadcrumbs…..wii remote made resident evil 4 a better game…..lets see what rockstar did with the controls

  • awng782

    Take-Two/Rockstar went from not publishing a single Nintendo game in nearly 5 years to publishing 3 in 2017 alone.


  • Melatelo

    I recall this was a rumour from a while back! Couldn’t be happier! Owned the original on 360 and it was one of my favourite games on the platform. This is a remaster right?

  • R.Z.

    I’m gonna support that, hoping it will prompt them to port some of their games on Switch even outside of a multi-console re-release project.
