Yesterday introduced the surprise announcement that Rockstar Video games will re-release 2011’s L.A. Noire on Xbox One, PlayStation four, and (most surprisingly) Nintendo Switch. However whereas many Switch house owners are doubtless excited to be getting one among Rockstar’s many AAA video games to initially skip a Nintendo platform launch, it seems they’ll must pay a premium for the privilege.
Rockstar’s website exhibits that whereas of L.A. Noire’s re-release will value $39.99 on Xbox One and PlayStation four, the Switch model will value $10 extra at $49.99. Digital releases on all three consoles are set at $39.99.
This isn’t the primary time a third-party launch has been priced larger on Switch than on different consoles. Earlier this yr, NBA 2K18 turned the primary sport to expertise this uneven pricing that many followers have dubbed “the Switch tax.”
For its half, Rockstar defined on its web site that L.A. Noire for Switch options “an array of new enhancements specifically for Switch gaming including a Joy-Con mode with gyroscopic, gesture-based controls, HD rumble and new wide and over-the-shoulder camera angles, plus contextual touch screen controls for portable detective work.”
However whereas the Switch model could have these additional options, it appears that it’s going to not embody the “array of technical and graphical enhancements for a more realistic Los Angeles” that the variations for the extra technologically succesful Xbox One and PlayStation four can have.
L.A. Noire releases for all three consoles on November 14.
