Electronic Arts (EA) has plans to release “multiple” games for Nintendo Switch this year, and while the identities of most of those games remain a mystery, one of them is not: Burnout Paradise Remastered. As the name would suggest, this is Stellar Entertainment’s remaster of the well-received Criterion Games racing game that originally released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC over a decade ago. This remastered version is already available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but none of those versions let you play Burnout Paradise Remastered inside an actual, physical car like this version will. (Insert ancient “Xzibit Yo dawg” meme here.)
So to get you hyped for the release of Burnout Paradise Remastered, EA has released a new trailer, and despite being a minute long, it’s one of the better trailers I’ve seen in recent memory. Notably, the trailer stresses the game will run at 60 FPS on Nintendo Switch.
EA shared the following about this title:
Burnout Paradise Remastered is the definitive Burnout Paradise experience, delivering the complete original game and eight high-octane DLC packs including Cops and Robbers pack, Legendary Cars, Burnout Bikes, and Big Surf Island. Racers can smash through traffic and rule the roads in adrenaline-fuelled online multiplayer with up to eight other players, or pass the controller (or console!) in local party play. Optimized for the Nintendo Switch with a range of technological enhancements, players will race and rampage through the open world in 60 glorious frames per second, along with high-resolution textures, and pinch-and-pull map controls.
Burnout Paradise Remastered will release on Switch on June 19 for $49.99, and it’s available for preorder now. And for more potential Nintendo Switch EA news, be sure to watch EA Play Live 2020 on June 18. There are bound to be some announcements that make Switch owners happy.
