L.A. Noire

It seems L.A Noire on the Switch has received an update. But it isn’t just any update– users are reporting that the entire game had to be redownloaded, and the file size went from 14GB to 19GB. There are currently people investigating for changes, and we’ll keep you updated as they inevitably make themselves known.


One of the new games that entered the UK charts this past week was L.A. Noire. In terms of individual formats, the Switch version came in at #36. It was also #6 on the Switch-specific chart.
