Warner Bros. suggests we’ll be able to play LEGO City Undercover on Switch without downloading the game

LEGO City Undercover’s packaging appeared online yesterday, which stated that players would need up to 13GB of storage for the “game download” on Switch. This suggested that the whole title is not included on the physical cartridge itself. But today, LEGO City Undercover publisher Warner Bros. has provided Eurogamer with a statement about the situation.
According to a company spokesperson, “players who purchase LEGO City Undercover on Nintendo Switch at retail do not need to download the game to play”.
If this is true, then we still don’t know why the label says it is required to download up to 13GB of data. It’s possible that some of the game can be played without the additional download, but we can’t say for sure just yet. We’ll keep you informed if we hear anything else about the situation.

LEGO Worlds: Switch version started development in January after positive LEGO City Undercover feedback
Posted on 9 months ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in News, Switch | 7 Comments | 0 Likes
LEGO Worlds was released on other platforms last week, but the Switch version doesn’t have a concrete release date yet. The reason for that might be the fact that development on the Switch version only started very recently. Here’s what Chris Rose, the associate producer of the game, had to say about the Switch version:
“We decided to make this version on January. We were looking at the development of LEGO City Undercover, so we asked the team ‘How are you going with that?’ and the answer was truly positive, testers were very happy with it. Then, we said: ‘Ok, let’s try it [bringing LEGO Worlds to Switch]’, we started to do programming things and testing some optimizations for the graphics engine. This started like three weeks ago, on February. We think that having a portable version of the game is something really interesting, so we went for that.”

As for why LEGO City Undercover is being revisited in the first place, it seems that the team has a strong attachment to the game. “It’s something that’s quite personal to us,” producer Matt Ellison told Game Informer this month.
