REDMOND, Wash. -- April 22, 2013

Chase McCain is known by the thankful citizens of LEGO City as a legendary
police officer. But where did his story begin? Every legend has to start
somewhere. LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, available now exclusively
for the Nintendo 3DS^™ system, is a prequel to the well-received LEGO City
Undercover game for Wii U^™. The story is set two years before the events of
the Wii U game and follows Chase McCain as a rookie cop trying to prove
himself in LEGO City.

“LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins builds on the same action-filled game
play and humor of LEGO City Undercover for Wii U,” said Scott Moffitt,
Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Every
member of the family can experience Chase’s exciting journey from rookie to
legend, on the go with their Nintendo 3DS systems.”

Like any first day on the job, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins starts
off with Chase performing simple tasks such as retrieving doughnuts and
looking for lost pets. But as the story progresses, Chase stumbles into
something much more menacing: Different gangs start to cause trouble all over
LEGO City, and it’s up to Chase McCain to put an end to their crime wave.

The story of LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins for Nintendo 3DS is based
on the popular LEGO City play sets, and features various undercover disguises
that Chase can collect and wear. These disguises grant him special abilities,
as well as access to new areas in the game’s budding LEGO City. While
investigating specific crimes in multiple missions, Chase will drive dozens of
vehicles, engage in slick hand-to-hand combat with criminals and gather a wide
variety of collectibles that can unlock bonus content.

Using the StreetPass^™ feature of Nintendo 3DS, players can even share
collectible items such as characters, vehicles and postcards with other
Nintendo 3DS users who also own a copy of the game.
