The Korean Games Rating and Administration Committee are at it again, leaking games before they have been officially announced. This time they have listed Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard about the game, back in August Amazon listed and just as quickly deleted a listing for Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered for Xbox One. The game has a launch date of November 13th which would put it just after the launch of the next-gen consoles. The title was listed for Xbox One and Switch but we would expect PlayStation and possibly next gen versions are also on the way.
The game has also been listed by Australian retailer Mighty Ape. Back in June Venturebeat reported that, following the success of Burnout Paradise Remastered, Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit was coming to Switch and other consoles . EA have not officially announced the remaster.
Hot Pursuit launched way back in 2010 on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii and scored 8/10 in our review.
Hot Pursuit is a refreshing reboot for a series that’s become tired and disjointed, with Criterion’s grip tightly controlling the direction of the game as much as the publisher. As a result, this latest Need for Speed is the best it’s been for years, and although it’s naturally not going to be a game for everyone, anyone looking for a solid racing game this Christmas with a significant emphasis on online competition should find this is well worth investigating, especially if you liked the demo.
The Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remaster isn’t the only EA game that has been leaked multiple times but remains unconfirmed by the publisher. The Mass Effect Trilogy Remaster has also popped up on various retailers, perhaps the Korean Games Rating and Administration Committee could confirm that one as well?
