The original Wii U version of LEGO City Undercover and its 3DS prequel, The Chase Begins, has been removed from the eShop of their respective platforms. First released back on March 13, 2013, LEGO City Undercover was eventually ported over to PS4, Xbox One and the Nintendo Switch in April 2017. LEGO City Undercover was met with positive reviews when it was first released, though The Chase Begins received a more mixed response.
