EA has today announced that Burnout Paradise Remastered will be veering onto Switch on June 19th, which includes all of the Paradise DLC (of which there was a lot) as well as 60fps carnage.
There’s also quite the big price tag that comes with its Switch version. Burnout Paradise Remastered will set you back £44.99/$49.99 for a remaster of a game that came out in 2008. That’s quite the premium, even by Resident Evil 4 standards.
Remastered is also available on other platforms for a much lower price, though it has been available on those since 2018. As much as I love Paradise, it being one of those simple pleasure games, I can’t really see myself dropping that much money on something that I already own on three other platforms.
This isn’t the first time EA have been a bit wild with their pricing on Switch. FIFA 20 on the console was only available as the “Legacy Edition“, which meant no gameplay additions and just an updated roster for £44.99/$49.99.
Still, if you’re yet to experience it, it might be worth dipping your toe into its ocean for the first time. The Switch isn’t exactly overflowing with racing games that don’t have karts, not to mention open worlds as well.
Maybe another successful port will make EA wake Criterion from their supplementary developer slumber and actually let them make a new Burnout. We can but hope.
