Top UK comedy stars providing voices for LEGO City Undercover

The LEGO series of games has shifted millions of copies and won over kids and parents alike. Now it's stepping up a gear with the imminent release of Wii U exclusive LEGO City Undercover. Taking the role of top cop Chase McCain, you'll roam the open world of LEGO City, using the game pad to aid you in your detective work.

You'll also hear a few familiar voices as you explore, as cult British comedians Adam Buxton and Peter Serafinowicz are among the cast. Buxton plays a salty sea captain who keeps popping up during your adventure, while Serafinowicz voices a snooty British billionaire. American impressionist Josh Robert Thompson, best known over here for his "More Than Freeman" TV commercials, will also be on hand to send up a few celebrities along the way.

The game's comedy pedigree comes in part thanks to lead writer Graham Goring, who as well as a career in game design spent three and a half years as a standup comic.

LEGO City Undercover is due out on March 28th exclusively for Wii U. A prequel game, LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins, will follow for the 3DS.
