In LEGO City Undercover, ‘It Will Take 10 Minutes To Drive A Loop Of The City’

lego_city_undercoverAccording to the sandbox-style, action-adventure video game’s executive producer, Loz Doyle, the city in Wii U-exclusive LEGO City Undercover is so big that it would take players 10 minutes just to drive around the edge of it. If players want to explore all the side roads and regions in the forthcoming game’s huge city, the drive will be even longer. LEGO City Undercover launches March 18th in North America.

“It would take 10 minutes just to drive a loop of the city. That doesn’t even include exploring all the side roads and other regions. Not only is there the ground level city to explore but you can also get up on the rooftops where there is a whole load of additional gameplay.”

      1. Just Cause 2 was just stupid big. Although in that game, is way mostly barren mountains.
        This game is more packed with stuff.

        1. Didn’t like the hugely repetitive villages in the mountains, although the mountains were actually pretty okay. You can have the most fun there.

    1. It’s just you. I think you might of missunderstood.

      To drove around the perimeter of the city full speed in a car will take 10 Minutes. That doesn’t include the 98% .

      Think about how far you can get on GTA by driving for 1 minute. ….

    2. 10 minutes that’s just about as long as it took to take a tour of liberty city in gta 4 in a reasonably fast car.. and liberty city didn’t have an extensive rural area.. this game does

    3. not in a video game its not in fact i coukd do the outer ring road of my city LEICESTER in about 15 mins at night clear roads THATS HUGE

      depth of field in this game impresses

  1. I loved my first lego game but when I played the others I realised it was exactly the same thing all over again. I’m not sure what to think about this one … I will wait for the demo.

  2. An amazing game. One I shall buy even without studying the game play mechanics. The Wii U has already started to drain our pockets. Save and trade, with games that’s the only way to go. Also pre-order and pay piecewise.

    1. The Wii U seriously drained my Wii U’s storage capacity, along with all the eshop games. I used at least half my deluxe Wii U’s storage, and need to get a Hard Drive for the Wii U really quick. I think i spent over $80 just on eshop games/ downloadable Wii U games. I still have a ton of games to still get. Lets see if the upcoming nintendo direct empties our pockets even more.

  3. Looks like a great game. Did they say how big the game is? Like how much storage it will take on the eshop, or if it is even available on the eshop?

  4. Considering from what we’ve seen with places being more than decorated rectangles, and having interactivity with outside areas, house, junkyards, buildings ect basically like LEGO based levels all taped together, and inside areas too, thats pretty damn impressive.
    I think i’ll have to pick this game up xD

      1. I think Mario Kart is coming. It usually makes an appearance on a new Nintendo console sooner rather than later. Who knows, maybe we’ll hear about it in the Nintendo Direct tomorrow…

        1. Mario Kart would be the best move from Nintendo. Just see how Mario Kart Wii sold worldwide. But I am looking forward for any news on Star Fox and the top-secret Retro Studios project. Fingers crossed for an excellent Wii U year.

  5. I am really looking forward to this, but after playing other Lego Games (mostly Lego Batman 2) I’m a little worry about this game be as buggy as the other ones.

  6. I’m going to buy this game sooner or later, but it’s at a low priority for me.

    from most wanted to least wanted

    Wii U:
    Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
    Pikmin 3
    Rayman Legends

    3DS:
    Animal Crossing: New Leaf
    Pokémon X Y
    Fire Emblem: Awakening
    Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon

    And I’ll get Lego City: Undercover, Wonderful 101, New Super Mario Bros U, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and Castlevania 3DS eventually, but as of right now they are at low priority.

    By the time I buy all of those games, it will be e3 and then my wallet will hate me. :(

      1. I will eventually, but I just bought New Super Mario Bros 2 a month ago and then found out about NSMBU. :( So after playing NSMB2, I’m not ready to start another 2d mario again just yet, but I will eventually.

          1. Agreed. But it somehow shows how Nintendo overloaded us with face-lifted 2D Mario games recently.

            I hope they port Super Mario World to 3DS as soon as possible. It would be amazing to feel the music, enjoy the landscapes and explore the vast map of SMW again in 3D.

      1. I did too! :D It really sold me on the game since Shadow Dragon kida made me sad with all the insignificant characters and having to kill off so many for the bous stages -_- what can I say, I get too attached lol :P

      2. Yes, it was fun. This is my first time playing Fire Emblem. I’ll probably play casual mode to get used to things then play traditionally.

    1. My list is the same as yours except Pokemon X and Animal Crossing are switched :p I don’t have a Wii U yet, but those 3 games are my top three when I get one :P

      1. Ahh! I forgot to submit my email with the first 2 comments! T_T I was wondering why my icon wasn’t pink lol

  7. I bet most people think it is big (the city)… But I bet the cars in the game just go 10mph
    I am just joking… But seriously… You have to know how fast the car goes.

  8. I think it’s strange that we know as much as we do about this game, and next to nothing about the prequel that is coming to the 3DS soon afterwards.

  9. The real question isn’t how big the city is. But how fast is the transportation? Ten minutes is a long time but wt if it’s because the cars move slow as hell lol =p

  10. I have read several good stuff here. Certainly worth bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how much effort you put to create such a magnificent informative website.
