Burnout was, at one point, one of the purest fun experiences on the planet. Part racing game, part pure destruction, for a long time it was something to get out all your aggression out in the form of crushed metal and carnage. Now, though, it’s one of many IPs rotting in the EA graveyard, but at the very least you will be able to take the last entry, Burnout Paradise Remastered, on the go with a Switch version, and we might have an idea of when it’s releasing.
While nothing official has been announced, on the US eShop, a release date of June is shown. While on the online page it simply says 2020, as you can see via Twitter user Wario64 below, when you go in manually through the system the date is shown there (it still is as of writing this). Can’t help but note that price, too, at a whopping $49.99. For reference, the original version that released on PS4 and Xbox One launched at $39.99 in 2018. It is the first time Paradise has been on a Nintendo system, in fact it’ll be the first Burnout game to do so since Burnout Legends on Nintendo DS in 2005. I guess they expect you to pay.
Burnout Paradise Remastered is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The Switch will possibly be release on June 19th.
