Two years after its release on PS4 and Xbox One, Burnout Paradise Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch. But at a much heftier price.
First released in 2008, Burnout Paradise took the popular race-and-crash formula of the Burnout series into an open world for the first time. The remaster, which released back in 2018, packed in all the DLC and gave the game a high-resolution face lift.
Now, the same package is coming to Nintendo Switch. Except, it’s coming with a higher price tag. At launch, Burnout Paradise Remastered had an RRP of £35/$40 on PS4 and Xbox One, but now you can pick it up for less than $20. You’d expect a similar price on Nintendo Switch, too. Not quite: the Switch version of Burnout Paradise Remastered will set you back $50.
The game offers nothing new – it’s the same experience that you’ll get on Xbox One and PS4. It promises that it’s been ‘optimised for Nintendo Switch’, however, and offers 60 fps, high-resolution textures and touchscreen controls for the map. Is that worth the extra cost? Hmm, we’re not sure.
But if you’re absolutely keen to play Burnout Paradise Remastered on a handheld device, then your time is coming. It’ll release on 19th June, and pre-orders are open now.
