The studio has announced four new editions of the game, though most of them are roughly the same as the original.

The most interesting new edition of L.A. Noire is L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files, a reimagined version made specifically for the HTC Vive. The game will feature seven select cases from the original game retrofitted to work with the virtual reality headset.

The other three editions are console releases. The game will be making its way to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

On the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 the game will run in native 1080p resolution and when played on the Xbox One X or the PlayStation 4 Pro the game will support 4K resolution rendering. These editions will also feature slightly updated graphics, new cinematic camera angles and high resolution textures.

The Nintendo Switch edition of the game is identical to the original 2011 release with the exception of several new control enhancements that will make it easier to interact with the game using the console's Joy-Con controllers.

All the new announced editions of the game will be released on November 14, 2017.

This comment has been removed. Great game, can't wait to revisit it. Besides it's also rumored that the new versions (PS4, Xbox One) will come with a first-person mode alà GTA V. There's apparently also four new outfits which you can collect by completing various objectives as well as new collectible hidden Novel Covers and Golden Vinyl records scattered throughout the world. If the GTA V remaster is anything to go by we are in for a treat!
