LEGO City Undercover for the Nintendo Wii U and LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins for Nintendo 3DS were both delisted worldwide on December 22nd, 2020. The game pages on Nintendo’s sites and a Nintendo Support page were updated with the following notification:
As of December 22, 2020, the LEGO City: Undercover game for the Wii U system and the LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems will no longer be available for purchase on Nintendo eShop. LEGO City: Undercover for the Nintendo Switch system will continue to be available.
Both titles were published by Nintendo and appear to have been timed exclusives. In the case of LEGO City Undercover, Warner Bros. Interactive would not announce plans to bring the game to other platforms until 2016. LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins was not brought to any other platform. It would appear that Nintendo’s exclusive publishing rights for these releases expired and Warner Bros. Interactive did not seek to renew their listings.
