Digital Foundry has a new comparison video up for LEGO City Undercover. We’re able to get a better look as to how the Switch version compares to the PlayStation 4 and original Wii U releases.

If you’re looking at how LEGO City Undercover has changed since the four years it came to Wii U, the game now features a redone lighting system along with upgrades to the effects pipeline, the quality of the shaders, the detail in the core art assets and normal maps, and more.

Another round of Switch maintenance is lined up for next week. Certain network services such as online play, rankings, etc. may be impacted.

The schedule is as follows:

– 5 PM PT (April 17) – 7 PM PT (April 17)

The Switch sold 906,000 units in the United States during March, Nintendo has revealed. Today’s information comes straight from the NPD Group.

According to Nintendo, Switch is “one of the fastest-selling video game systems of all time.” It also comes “in a nontraditional month for a console launch.”

Update: As expected, Nintendo has responded to this month’s NPD report – specifically Switch and Zelda sales. See their comments here.


Original: Preliminary data is beginning to be reported for March 2017. In the United States, we’re hearing that Switch was the top-selling platform, beating out the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The system sold over 500,000 units in North America during its first week alone.

Nintendo previously confirmed that Switch experienced the best first 2-day sales in the Americas for any system in its history. Records were outpacing the Wii, and continued to be broken.

Nintendo may have more to say about Switch’s sales within the next week.
