L.A. Noire’s Latest Remasters Will Replace The Inaccurate Truth/Doubt/Lie Prompts
Today, Rockstar just showcased another trailer for L.A. Noire, this time running on the Nintendo Switch. The trailer looks decent, revealing that the portable console packs enough punch to run the police adventures of detective Cole Phelps.
But the biggest takeaway was actually that the game have made some revisions to the prompts during interrogation sessions.
During interrogations, you will ask witnesses questions which you can then respond to. Depending on the information you have (and the facial expression of the witnesses), you can have Phelps choose to believe the story and continue on the same line of questioning, press the witness further if you believe the story isn’t adding up but you have no proof, or accuse them of lying by pointing out evidence to prove so. The prompts in the original game translates to truth, doubt and lie.
It’s an odd naming convention. Doubting someone would usually lead to Phelps go aggressive and shouting at witnesses- which have achieved meme status. As such, the prompts have been changed to a clearer wording- good cop, bad cop and accuse.
Kotaku has reached out to Rockstar and has confirmed this is the case for the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game as well. “The change was made so that the options more accurately reflect Phelps’ behavior when a player selects each choice,” the spokesperson for Rockstar said. This should help reduce the chance of unexpectedly seeing Phelps bursts in anger.
L.A. Noire will be available for the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on November 14.
