E3 2012: LEGO City Undercover Exposed

Mystery solved

Last year's LEGO City Stories is now LEGO City Undercover, and judging from the first gameplay trailer below it could be quite special.

The open world genre might be the preserve of the more adult titles these days, but LEGO City Undercover keeps things distinctly family-friendly by having you solve crimes instead of committing them. You can scan areas with the Wii U GamePad to spot hidden criminals before giving chase in vehicles or on foot to apprehend them.

Anyway, we think it looks great, but what do you think?
