Need for Speed Hot Pursuit May Be Getting Remastered

Need for Speed May Be Coming to the Switch With 6 Other Games

According to a report by GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb, Electronic Arts will be releasing a remaster of the 2010 Criterion-developed racer Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit as one of the seven upcoming Nintendo Switch titles. While some of the seven titles have been confirmed by EA such as Apex and FIFA, Grubb has rumored that Plants vs. Zombies is coming to Nintendo’s hybrid console, as well as Lost in Random and an unnamed title from Velan Studios. Need for Speed Heat was the most recent installment in the franchise and it released for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, with no Nintendo Switch release available.

During a recent EA Play, EA Games confirmed that seven of their games will be coming to the Nintendo Switch over the next twelve months, but they only confirmed a handful of them. Apex Legends, Burnout Paradise Remastered, FIFA 21 and Lost in Random are all confirmed to be coming to the hybrid console, with Burnout having recently released. This leaves three games to expect from EA Games this year. Jeff Grubb claims that the remaining games are Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, Plants vs. Zombies Battle for Neighborville and an unannounced Velan Studios game.

Considering Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is a fan-favorite title, it would be very fitting for Criterion to return to the title after becoming the developers of Need for Speed once again. Considering the Nintendo Switch doesn’t include a Need for Speed title, it would be great if that rumor is accurate as they’re some of the best arcade racing titles on the market. Although Need for Speed Heat was never brought to the hybrid console, a port of the latest installment in the series would be nice as well.
