Following speculation that it would be remastering one of the best open-world driving games ever made, EA has confirmed that Burnout Paradise HD Remaster (that's a tentative title currently) will hit PlayStation 4 in Japan on March 16th, costing 4,104 Yen.

Given the Xbox One's dire standing in Japan, it would seem that EA only has plans to release the game physically on PS4 in that region - but we'd imagine it will come to both consoles elsewhere in the world.

It's also worth pondering where this leaves the Switch version of the game, which was mentioned in those Brazilian rumours. EA is one of the companies Nintendo cites as offering third-party support for the console in 2018, so perhaps we'll see Burnout Paradise confirmed at the (rumoured) Nintendo Direct we're (hopefully) getting this month?
