Rumor: L.A. Noire Remastered Might be Heading to Nintendo Switch has come forth with brand new information regarding a certain game from Rockstar heading to Nintendo Switch. Unfortunately, it’s not Red Dead Redemption 2, but it is a highly touted game from their back catalog that hasn’t been talked about in some time. Their source, who was right about some aspects in regards to GTA 5 Online, stated the following:

“According to what I heard, Rockstar might be releasing a remastered version of L.A. Noire on the Nintendo Switch,”

Regardless if the game actually does release, it would be good to hear that Rockstar and Nintendo are even communicating, given how Rockstar has avoided Nintendo’s home console ventures like the plague. L.A. Noire is an older title and it’s unclear what audience if any would exist for it, but it may open the door for a Grand Theft Auto 5 port, with potential for future games after Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to the platform.

That last part I mentioned is really what is exciting about this prospect overall. I enjoyed L.A. Noire last generation, but I more or less see that game as potentially opening the door to bigger things down the road. I just hope this doesn’t, if true, start to become a trend of always getting older titles, versus the newest releases. I have a similar hope that Skyrim coming to Switch means whatever is after Dishonored 2 from Bethesda also comes to Switch.
