The Aussie-made L.A. Noire is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One and VR

Solve grisly murders on the go or in virtual reality.

Of all the games to receive a remaster for current-gen consoles, the lie-spotting L.A. Noire is easily one of the more exciting. Developed by the now-defunct Aussie studio Team Bondi, the 1940s detective game explored a lot of neat ideas with its ground-breaking facial capture technology and its multi-path cases where success was never guaranteed.

It's welcome news, then, that Rockstar is bringing L.A. Noire back to walk the beat again on the latest generation of consoles. Releasing 14 November, L.A. Noire will bring along all its DLC when it comes to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. The PS4 and Xbox One versions will also benefit from enhanced visuals, with improved lighting and higher-resolution textures. If you've got a PS4 Pro or plan on picking up an Xbox One X, you'll get to experience the game in 4K, too.

Rockstar has also rebuilt L.A. Noire for the HTC Vive virtual reality headset, taking seven of the game's cases and redesigning them to better fit the VR environment. Considering how much L.A. Noire relied on examining items to find clues, VR seems like a good fit, and we're excited to test it out come November.
