LEGO City Executive Producer Loz Doyle has told the Official Nintendo Magazine that the game just wouldn’t be the same if they brought it to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Doyle says that the game fully utilises the Wii U GamePad and that the experience just couldn’t be replicated on other home consoles. From what Doyle says it’s extremely unlikely that LEGO City Undercover will come to other platforms in the future.
“LEGO City Undercover would definitely lose something on other platforms. Chase is actually given a LEGO version of the GamePad as his Police Communicator, so it’s really woven into the story.
“We started with a massive array of ideas [for the GamePad] but in the end we focused on it being a police device. The map is really useful to have on at all times rather than in a small corner of the screen, plus you receive video calls from different characters.”
