L.A. Noire for Switch to run 1080p docked, 720p handheld and other details

The docked version runs 1080p because it has external power? The dock doesn't really do anything except for power right?

L.A. Noire to run 1080p docked, 720p handheld and other details

We’ve got a little more detail about L.A. Noire, it seems that the game will run in 1080p while in TV mode and will run at 720p in portable mode. There is no mention of frame rate as of now. A few other notable facts are:

  • the complete original game
  • all DLC
  • Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, and HD Rumble
  • new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles
  • contextual touch screen controls for Handheld Mode

Originally released in 2011 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, L.A. Noire is getting a re-release/remaster on several platforms, and that includes the Nintendo Switch. Never heard of the game before? Here’s what Take-Two had to say about it:

L.A. Noire takes place in the seedy and violent underbelly of 1940’s Los Angeles as decorated veteran and newly minted detective, Cole Phelps investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes. Each successfully solved case brings Phelps greater success, but also brings him closer to the dark criminal heart of post-war L.A. The game was an Official Selection of the Tribeca Film Festival for its cinematic approach to gameplay and narrative.

L.A. Noire is an action-adventure game, played from a third-person perspective. You play as Cole Phelps, a detective, a tackle various cases set in 1940’s Los Angeles. The game also happens to be open world, letting you roam in the city, with various optional activities to enjoy.

And provides video out. The Switch's screen resolution is only 720p so it makes no sense to go beyond that in portable mode. It saves power since the unit runs in lower power mode when portable.
