Burnout Paradise HD Listing Spotted in Japan, Possible March Release Date

Criterion's racing game could be coming back.

Burnout Paradise, the classic 2008 open-world racing game from Criterion, could be making a comeback.

According to Gematsu, a Japanese retailer listed "Burnout Paradise HD Remaster (title tentative)" for a March 16 release. Priced at 4104 yen (~$36.28), the HD re-release might be set for a March launch date across both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

Last year, Gamepress.br unearthed a similar listing for Burnout Paradise on PS4 and Xbox One, this one dated for a March 1 launch date.

No word yet on whether this is just a straight port, or an enhanced version of the game. But considering Burnout Paradise was one of the best-received racing games of the previous generation, I'm sure fans will no doubt be excited just to have the game back in their library.

We've reached out to EA for comment.

In the meantime, Burnout Paradise is actually backwards compatible on the Xbox One right now.
