Chase McCain is known by the thankful citizens of LEGO City as a legendary police officer. But where did his story begin? Every legend has to start somewhere. LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, available now exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS™ system, is a prequel to the well-received LEGO City Undercover game for Wii U™. The story is set two years before the events of the Wii U game and follows Chase McCain as a rookie cop trying to prove himself in LEGO City.
“LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins builds on the same action-filled game play and humour of LEGO City Undercover for Wii U,” said Ron Bertram, Nintendo of Canada’s vice-president and general manager. “Every member of the family can experience Chase’s exciting journey from rookie to legend, on the go with their Nintendo 3DS systems.”
Like any first day on the job, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins starts off with Chase performing simple tasks such as retrieving doughnuts and looking for lost pets. But as the story progresses, Chase stumbles into something much more menacing: Different gangs start to cause trouble all over LEGO City, and it’s up to Chase McCain to put an end to their crime wave.
The story of LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins for Nintendo 3DS is based on the popular LEGO City play sets, and features various undercover disguises that Chase can collect and wear. These disguises grant him special abilities, as well as access to new areas in the game’s budding LEGO City. While investigating specific crimes in multiple missions, Chase will drive dozens of vehicles, engage in slick hand-to-hand combat with criminals and gather a wide variety of collectibles that can unlock bonus content.
Using the StreetPass™ feature of Nintendo 3DS, players can even share collectible items such as characters, vehicles and postcards with other Nintendo 3DS users who also own a copy of the game.
