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:

During its EA Play Live presentation, it was announced that EA will be putting seven games on Switch over the next year. Two were confirmed at the time: Apex Legends and Burnout Paradise Remastered. The other titles weren’t named, but since Lost in Random and FIFA 21 Legacy Edition were confirmed for Switch after the presentation, that leaves three mystery projects.

VentureBeat claims to have insight into EA’s plans. The site has accurately reported on Nintendo rumors this year and indicated that Apex Legends would be announced for Switch, which was later confirmed during EA Play Live.

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.

Yesterday, EA and Respawn Entertainment revealed that Apex Legends is heading to Switch. GameSpot spoke with director Michael Higham to chat a bit more about bringing the battle royale game over to the console.

Higham noted that Apex Legends is “looking really good and running very well” on Switch currently. The team has “been working on it for awhile,” and is now in the testing phase. Additionally, we have confirmation that gyro controls are supported.

“As another new IP set in a twisted dystopia where uncertainty and chaos are feared, the game follows Even, a courageous young girl, and her living dice companion, Dicey,” EA says of the new game. “Together, the two embark on a perilous journey where they must learn to embrace the unknown and play the hand they’ve been dealt, in a bid to break the curse of Random. ”
