Shanghai, China – November 2017 – Virtuos is very proud to have partnered with Rockstar Games to bring  the enhanced version of  L.A. Noire on Swich, Playstation 4 , Xbox One and VR.

Noire is the story of decorated veteran and newly minted detective, Cole Phelps as he investigates an escalating series of cases inspired by real-world crimes. Search crime scenes for clues, interrogate suspects and chase down criminals on a search for truth in a city where everyone has something to hide.

The 2011 AAA title has been re-released this month with a richer, freshly polished visual experience. Graphical enhancements include high definition textures, enhanced lighting, and new cinematic camera angles. The game now plays natively in 1080p for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, and in stunning 4K for PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X.

Rockstar’s noir thriller plays to the strengths of the Switch with console-specific enhancements, including a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble, new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work.
