Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins is released today on the 3DS, and offers a pocket-sized insight on Chase McCain's past as a rookie cop.

In the game, you can partake in side-quests to unlock Chase's selection of outfits and costumes. Finding all of these side-quests isn't an easy task, but Family Gamer TV's Andy Robertson has discovered a glitch which removes the challenge entirely:

As you can see in this video, a glitch in Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins lets you cruise around the city on top of a car to discover all the side-quests. When driving a car normally the scanner icon, which flashes when a side-quest is nearby, is not available. However using this “car surfing” glitch you can keep an eye on the scanner while touring the city and sort out all those needy citizens.

A big part of the challenge to completing the game is scanning for the different side-missions for each of the different outfits he wears. This handy trick should set you well on your way to tracking down those hard to find missions.

We'd advise you to use this trick with caution — it could ruin your enjoyment of the game.
