IGN talk to the sets creator Ruben B. Nerheim about the set and his love for LEGO and Zelda. Is Zelda a licence you would like to see LEGO acquire? It is not beyond the realms of doubt, LEGO CUUSOO did approve the Nintendo owned Minecraft licence…
We have featured the work of Baron Von Brunk before, you may recall his amazing, fully functional 5ft NES controller?
Well for the launch of Nintendo’s LEGO City Undercover last month, The Baron was invited to showcase some of his work at Nintendo World in New York! Here is a look at the some of the cool custom pieces he had on display including The Fireflower from Super Mario 3, an Angry Birds mosaic and a Game Boy that Transforms into a robot!
LEGO City Undercover has been billed as “exclusive to Wii U”… and it still is… well kind of!
A prequel to the events of LEGO City Undercover is to be released for Nintendo 3DS on 26th April called LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins.
The response to LEGO City Undercover has been mixed so far. Game play has been hailed, with several reviewers referring to it as “Grand Theft LEGO”, but slow loading and the requirement of an external hard drive to download software for digital purchases has taken the shine off this somewhat.
