The new Nintendo Switch is the hottest video game console in the world right now, and that will continue to be the case for the foreseeable future. Nintendo did a fantastic job of thinking up a fun new way to game at home or on the go, and stores just can’t keep the console in stock. If you’ve managed to pick up a new Switch, then you know that the biggest problem with the console so far is the lack of games. Good news, though: For the first time in over a month, a big-name game has been added to the Nintendo Switch’s lineup.

This new game isn’t exactly new, since it was first released back in 2013. The Nintendo Switch port of LEGO City Undercover is just as fun as the original though, which received a rating of 8/10 from GameSpot. This is the first big-name game to hit the Switch since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Just Dance 2017, and it’ll be the only high-profile release until Mario Kart 8 Deluxe hits the Switch later this month. Remember, Prime members can pre-order Mario Kart 8 Deluxe right now and save 20%.

Here’s the launch trailer:

And here are some notes from the product page:

  • Join the Chase! In LEGO CITY Undercover, play as Chase McCain, a police officer who’s been tasked with going undercover to hunt down the notorious – and recently escaped – criminal Rex Fury.
  • Explore the sprawling open-world metropolis that is LEGO City.
  • LEGO CITY Undercover brings together witty, original storytelling with signature LEGO humor to create a fun-filled experience for players of all ages to enjoy.
