L.A. Noire Coming to VR and Nintendo Switch

The latest round of video game rumors has the critically acclaimed neo-noir action-adventure title L.A. Noire slated for re-release on VR platforms and the Nintendo Switch. Originally released in 2011, the video game title was published by Rockstar Games and developed by the late Australian studio Team Bondi - which shuttered its doors shortly following the release of the aforementioned property. Despite becoming a quick best-seller around the world, the first game from Team Bondi was riddled with controversy, and led to the dissolution of the company - as well as its sister studio DepthAnalysis, which developed the award-winning 3D motion capture technology utilized in the making of the game.

In the intervening six years, L.A. Noire has gone down as the first video game to be shown at the Tribeca Film Festival, and is additionally among the more groundbreaking releases within the gaming industry from the past ten years. Unfortunately, allegations against Team Bondi that accused the former Australian studio of poor working conditions that led to approximately 100 names being misrepresented on the game's final credits sullied any hopes of a followup -  though the latest word has the original title due for a remastered version.

According to well known Rockstar Twitter tipster Yan2295, the renowned publisher may be working on developing a remastered version of L.A. Noire that will makes its way to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch this summer - a rumor that was further attested to by fellow industry insider Direct-Feed Games.
