LEGO City: Undercover will launch on Wii U in North America on March 18, while the game's prequel, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, will arrive on 3DS on April 21.
While it's slightly odd that the prequel will release more than a month after the standard game, it's good to know we won't have to wait much longer to get a desperately-needed brick fix. When we got our hands on the Wii U title, we found that despite numerous comparisons to Grand Theft Auto, the game resembled it in no way. Finally free from the shackles of its recent licensing agreements, it'll be interesting to see how well the next game in the LEGO franchises manages standing on its own two feet.
We've reached out to Nintendo to find out if European and Australian release dates are available and will update the story as soon as we know more.
