Burnout Paradise Switch Port Gets New Gameplay Trailer, Coming Later This Month

The beloved open-world racer Burnout Paradise is coming to Switch with all of its DLC.


Burnout Paradise is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 19, and there's a new gameplay trailer that shows off the port. According to publisher Electronic Arts, the port will run at 60 frames per second, and it will include all of the DLC that came out for Paradise over the years, including the extra environment of Big Surf Island.

The Switch version of the game also includes the game's nine-player online multiplayer and traditional local play with one controller, as well as pinch-and-pull map controls. While Burnout Paradise first came out back in 2008, a remastered version of the game came out for its 10th anniversary in 2018, and that's the one coming to Switch. The price tag for the port is a bit steep, however: It's currently listed for $50. For comparison, the PC remaster is currently on sale for $5 on Origin.

Though it's well over a decade old at this point, Burnout Paradise is generally considered one of the best games in its series. However, despite its success over the years, we have yet to see an official follow-up.

Several of the key personnel involved with pioneering the franchise left developer Criterion and started their own studio, which produced a Burnout-style game in 2019 called Dangerous Driving. Recent news indicates that Dangerous Driving 2 will be an open-world game like Paradise, so maybe fans are finally going to get an unofficial follow-up that they've been wanting for many years.
