Games discussed: , Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, Burnout Paradise Remastered

At EA Play, the publisher revealed a few of its upcoming games moving to Switch. According to a VentureBeat report from the reliable, albeit tease-heavy, Jeff Grubb, we now know the rest of the list.

EA themselves revealed plans for Apex Legends, its blockbuster free to play hero royale from Respawn is one of the games and perhaps the biggest. But another half-dozen games round out a list that represents EA's newfound commitment to Nintendo's hybrid platform. Here's everything else coming to Switch in 2020.

FIFA 21 Legacy Edition will make the series' debut on Switch. The subtitle "Legacy Edition"  may leave some feeling a bit worried this will be a watered-down version fo the best-selling soccer sim, but we'll have to wait and see how it performs on Switch. 

Also joining the list are two EA Originals - the publisher's "indie" label putting out smaller-scale games. In this case it's Zoink Games' Lost in Random, the Burtonesque platformer seen at EA Play. The other EA Original is an unannounced title from Velen Studios. 

Also coming is the already revealed Burnout Paradise Remastered port to Switch, but it's not the only racing game. According to Grubb, a remaster of the Need for Speed Hot Pursuit remake is coming to Switch within the next year as well.

Rounding out the complete list of seven is Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, the most recent entry in the popular multiplayer series.

For those scrolling for the TLDR, here you are:

  • Burnout Paradise Remastered
  • Apex Legends
  • FIFA 21 Legacy Edition
  • Lost in Random
  • Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville
  • Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered
  • Unannounced Velan Studios game

Most of these don't have release dates yet and two of them haven't even been revealed, but Grubb's info is usually reliable, so look for official confirmation in the months ahead.
