Lego City Undercover requires 40-50 hours for full completion
Despite how fast you can plow through the upcoming Lego City Undercover, developer Traveller’s Tales Fusion says it will probably take about 40-50 hours to complete everything.
Executive producer Loz Doyle told Nintendo Life (via VG247), “There are so many vehicles, characters, and missions. There’s so much content in the game already — you’re talking 40-50 hours to get 100 percent, it’s difficult to imagine what we could put in. We wouldn’t rule it out, but it’d have to be the right thing to fit with the rest of the game."
The team also said that the experience is very tailored to the Wii U's GamePad.
"I don’t think for Lego City we could do it without the GamePad, it’s pretty much central and a core element of the game," said lead designer Lee Barber. "This is for both the character in the game and the player; what you see the character doing, the player can do as well, so they’re linked by the same device. As the character in the game upgrades, so do the player’s abilities to do the same. It’s not just limited to a map of a city, the player can feel like a detective or like they’re locating a robber, or locating a hidden item. We feel that’s pretty unique."
As long as the game doesn't suddenly go multiplatform, that statement ought to give Wii U enthusiasts a sense of hope. The best games on Nintendo's new console might be those developed with the tablet-style controller in mind.
