PRESS RELEASE:

Nintendo announces that LEGO CITY Undercover: The
Chase Begins, exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, launches in
Australia and New Zealand on 27th April 2013.  The handheld title puts the
action of LEGO CITY into the palms of players’ hands allowing for
portable exploration as Chase McCain.

Developed by TT Games, LEGO CITY Undercover: The Chase Begins is a prequel
to the Wii U’s Lego City Undercover and stars Chase McCain as a rookie cop on his
first exciting adventure in LEGO CITY. Explore a city full of LEGO
bustling with wacky characters, brought to life on your Nintendo 3DS, and
learn the ropes of police work with Chase McCain, donning disguises for
special skills when solving missions and fighting crime on the city’s
streets.  You can call up your Scanner from the Touch Screen and move your
Nintendo 3DS, utilising the motion sensors, to analyse the LEGO CITY
environment for audio or visual clues.  On your first job as a cop you
encounter the crime kingpin Rex Fury and it’s your mission to put him
behind bars!

In the Wii U exclusive LEGO CITY Undercover, set after the events of
the Nintendo 3DS version, Rex Fury has escaped from prison!  LEGO CITY fans
looking forward to recapturing Rex can now also get to know the city’s
colourful cast of characters in a series of webisodes on YouTube.  In the
series of six webisodes leading up to the launch of LEGO CITY Undercover,
fans can discover the stories behind Chase McCain and other key players in
the hunt for Rex Fury, including Chief Dunby, the head of the LEGO CITY
Police Department; Chase’s bumbling buddy Frank Honey; colleague Ellie
Phillips, who chimes in through the GamePad; Natalia Kowalski, Chase’s
girl who’s gone into witness protection; and a host of bad guys Chase
must defeat to bring Rex Fury to justice.

Fight crime on the go with Chase McCain in LEGO CITY Undercover: The Chase
Begins for Nintendo 3DS which launches across Australia and New Zealand on
27th April, or do some police homework from the comfort of your sofa in
LEGO CITY Undercover for Wii U which launches on 28th March, available as
a packaged game or as a digital download via Nintendo eShop.

There are also some screen shots of the game:
