Burnout Paradise Remastered

Switch received a quality racer this summer in the form of Burnout Paradise Remastered. Developer Stellar Entertainment gave the port the proper care, as the game is mostly flawless when it comes to performance and even sports features like pinch-and-pull map control. Now players can experience Burnout Paradise on the go thanks to Switch’s portable nature.

Recently, Nintendo Everything was given the opportunity to speak with Stellar Entertainment creative director Chris Roberts. Roberts chatted about the experience of bringing Burnout Paradise Remastered to Switch, including the challenges involved and maintaining high performance. 

Our full discussion can be read in full below. 

Burnout Paradise Remastered was initially released in 2018. Then this past summer, EA and Stellar Entertainment brought the game to Switch – more than two years after the initial launch.

Although Burnout Paradise Remastered came to Nintendo’s console much later on, it was actually something the team discussed during the project’s early days. Stellar Entertainment creative director Chris Roberts told Nintendo Everything in a recent interview:

After previously landing on other platforms, EA brought Burnout Paradise Remastered to Switch last week. Digital Foundry has taken a closer look at the port to see how the game runs and compares on Nintendo’s console.

Below are the main highlights:

System: Switch
Release date: June 19, 2020
Developer: Criterion Games / Stellar Entertainment
Publisher: Electronic Arts

Early on, Burnout Paradise Remastered tells you that this game will be “unlike any driving experience you’ve ever had.” Although many people already have experienced this exact same driving adventure in the years since its original release on last-gen consoles in 2008, it is nonetheless just as fun as ever. This remaster promises to bundle all of that version’s extra content and DLC into one polished package that features improved visuals and performance, and after releasing on other platforms a few years back, it’s finally made it to Switch. The release on Nintendo’s console might have a few drawbacks of its own, but it preserves all the simple joy of the original game with pristine performance in portable and docked play.
