Take-Two and Rockstar are apparently keen on bringing the detective tale that is L.A. Noire to a new batch of platforms. Rumor has it that a remaster of the game will hit the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The rumor kicked off back in January when Yan2295 on Twitter fired off this tweet. It’s worth mentioning that they have a strong track record when it comes to leaks concerning Rockstar.
According to what I heard, Rockstar might be releasing a remastered version of L.A. Noire on the Nintendo Switch.

Another leaker backed up those rumors that same month.
Regarding LA Noire Remaster, the title is sounding like it'll come to Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. Release slated for late summer.

Now, WWG, which is part of ComicBook.com, has it that the L.A. Noire Remaster is real. Even further, they have it “from three separate sources related to Rockstar” that the game will feature a VR mode on PlayStation and a first-person mode on all versions.
That first-person mode seems plausible given Rockstar’s choice to do it with Grand Theft Auto V, though L.A. Noire emphasized the main characters facial animations so hard that this gives me pause.
What do you think? Could we see a remaster of L.A. Noire? I liked the game, though some thought it was a mess.
