Lego City Undercover trailer introduces your mission control

Cowboy cop Chase McCain has a lot of work to do in cleaning up Lego City, and he has teammates to help him do just that. This video from Nintendo and TT Fusion introduces Chase's coworker Ellie Phillips, who serves as a sort of mission control back at HQ. Ellie is responsible for giving Chase an upgraded police communicator, which lets the player hold up the Wii U controller and scan the environment for hidden super-bricks. Lego City Undercover is out exclusively for Wii U on March 18.


Lego City Undercover TV commercial builds up the story

As this TV commercial for Lego City Undercover shows, something's rotten in the state of Lego City. Bad guy Rex Fury is running amok, and the police and authorities are helpless to stop him. Enter hero Chase McCain, who somehow manages to have a chiseled jaw with a perfectly cylindrical head. Chase and the player will have to together tackle vehicle chases and kung-fu combat straight out of Grand Theft Auto alongside the costume-swapping action that defines the Lego titles of this generation. Lego City Undercover hits Wii U in North America on March 18th.


Meet Lego City Undercover's Chase McCain

Chase McCain is the dashing hero of Lego City Undercover, and a new video series from developer TT Games begins today with a focus on the detective. McCain is an undercover cop, although if the reactions of the townspeople in the minute-long video above are anything to go by, his reputation precedes him. Gameplay footage in the video shows McCain using his parkour skills to shimmy up pipes and scamper across bridges between buildings, as he chases down would-be robbers. Lego City Undercover launches March 18 on Wii U.


Lego City Undercover's humorous side showcased in new trailer

Lego City Undercover's latest trailer showcases the surprisingly good senses of humor possessed by the title's band of seedy thugs, as seen above. The TT Games-developed open-world title, which launches on Wii U March 18, tasks the player with infiltrating crime rings to crack a citywide case; a process which involves no small amount of slapstick humor and pun-filled dialogue. The trailer also showcases a few automobile chases, some skyscraper platforming levels and the utility of the Wii U GamePad, which serves as map, communicator and a number of other essential detective tools. For more info on the GamePad's in-game uses, check out this gameplay-heavy trailer that was released earlier this week.
