Burnout Paradise Remastered coming to Switch this June, according to eShop leak

Burnout Paradise Remastered coming to Switch

Criterion Games’ Burnout Paradise is widely regarded as one of the greatest arcade racing games ever made. It first debuted in 2008 but got the green light for a remaster to mark its 10th anniversary in 2018. At the time it only released on PC, PS4, and Xbox, but a recent leak has confirmed a Switch port is on the way.

A listing for Burnout Paradise Remastered briefly appeared on the Nintendo eShop. On the details page, its estimated release date was listed as June 19th and the release price at $49.99. Nintendo has since left the listing up on its website, but the release date has been changed to just 2020.

Switch owners have plenty to be excited for as Burnout Paradise is set to fill a void in the hybrid console’s library. Outside of Mario Kart, the Switch is starved for great racing games. Decent enough titles like GRID Autosport, Gear Club Unlimited 2, and VRally 4 are all available but there’s nothing truly iconic.

Unfortunately, it appears that those interested will once again be hit with the age-old Switch tax. Many games released on Nintendo’s primary platform are prone to costing far more than the alternatives.

If Burnout Paradise Remastered does launch at $49.99, it will cost seven times that of the Origin PC release. Even the Xbox One and PS4 versions have long had their price dropped to just $19.99. If the extra money is worth the advantage of playing on the go is up to you to decide.

Given the recent bizarre Cooking Mama incident, it’s not a great sign to see another oversight on Nintendo’s behalf. Their store is good and offers some of the best quality control on the market. But if they keep letting these mishaps happen, it will catch up with them.
