Fans had been waiting for Nintendo Direct news for a while, and today racing fans got some very good news!
EA and Nintendo announced that Burnout Paradise Remastered will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch consoles this year!
Burnout Paradise Remastered on Switch
RACE HARD: Burnout makes you think as well as race
The game is fully optimized and enhanced for the Nintendo Switch in 60 FPS. It includes pinch-and-pull map control for ease of navigation. Burnout Paradise Remastered put players back into the world of Paradise City.
Alongside the original base game, players can also enjoy the eight add-on game packs released during the Year of Paradise. Including the extension to the drivable world with Big Surf Island.
“We want to give players more choice by delivering games they love to the platforms they want to play on,” said Steve Pointon, SVP, 3rd Party Content.
“Burnout Paradise Remastered is a high-octane, action-packed experience for a whole new generation of players on the Nintendo Switch who can soon experience the excitement of an open-world racing game anywhere, anytime.”
What is Burnout Paradise?
Originally released in 2008 on Xbox 360 and PS3, the remastered game hit Xbox One and PS4 in 2018.
The open-world game is not set to a rigid framework like other racers. In a race you could follow any route you like to get to the finish line, while Showtime asked you to bounce the vehicle around for as long as possible to gain points and create carnage.
AGENT OF CHAOS: Burnout wants you to be reckless!
Burnout Paradise Remastered delivers the complete original game and all additional main DLC packs ever released.
Including the Cops and Robbers pack, Legendary Cars, Burnout Bikes, and Big Surf Island, with new locations, challenges, and vehicles to discover. Send cars launching, spinning, and scraping through the city, and wreck friends online or join forces to demolish hundreds of online challenges.
It's safe to say Burnout Paradise, and Remastered, were big hits. Both received 80+ scores on Metacritic.
With racing options limited on the Switch this is exciting news for fans of the Nintendo portable console.
