Called LA Noire: The VR Case Files, the new game will feature seven all-new, self-contained cases set in the game's world, designed explicitly for VR.

Rockstar Games has announced that its renowned detective thriller, L.A. Noire, is hitting Xbox One later this year.

The 1940's detective game stars Aaron Staton, best known for playing Ken Cosgrove on AMC's Mad Men.

It's been long rumoured, but LA Noire's arrival in the current gen of gaming has today been confirmed by Rockstar.

Players on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 can also look forward to a fully remastered rendition of the game in 1080p including enhanced lighting and clouds, new cinematic camera angles, high-resolution textures and more.

As everyone patiently waits for Red Dead Redemption 2, Rockstar is bringing something to tide us over with enhanced ports of L.A. Noire to modern consoles.

Luyendyk has been away from the spotlight since losing to Jef Holm on Emily Maynard's season of " The Bachelorette " in 2012. Luyendyk himself told Good Morning America he had been in talks for several years about doing the show, according to Variety.

The real talking point though is that the game is coming to Switch with console specific enhancements including gesture-based controls, contextual touch screen, and new camera angles. The Nintendo Switch version of L.A. Noire will also include the previously released downloadable content along with unique controls. It's the first VR title to be released by Rockstar.

This will be the first release of a Rockstar-published game on a Nintendo system since Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars on DS in 2009.

There will also physical releases for all console formats, great news for retailers who are sometimes shutout of re-releases by digital-only strategies.

Did you play LA Noire back in the day? It's got seven of the cases from the original game, all re-created in VR so you can experience them far more personally.

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