If you had any interest in picking up the digital versions of LEGO City Undercover for Wii U or LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins for 3DS, you’re out of luck. Nintendo quietly pulled both titles from their digital storefronts recently. A reason for their removal was not provided.
LEGO City Undercover for Switch, which is largely the same as the Wii U version, can be bought digitally on that system without any issues. However, The Chase Begins was a bit of a different experience, and there’s no way to access the game from the 3DS eShop any longer (unless you bought it previously). However, it’s true that physical copies are still out there in the wild.
Nintendo published LEGO City Undercover on Wii U and 3DS originally, so it’s possible that some sort of license expired. Warner Bros. directly handled the Switch version.
