Metro Redux appears to be in the works for Switch as new rating appears in Europe
One of the earliest announcements made for Wii U was Metro: Last Light. That release ended up being cancelled in the end, but the first-person shooter IP may now finally be making an appearance on Nintendo’s console with Metro Redux for Switch.
Metro Redux was first rumored for the Big N’s platform after a listing popped up on a Portuguese retailer website. Then more significantly, the European ratings board PEGI just added in a rating yesterday. Those two pages combined all but suggest that an announcement is imminent.
Metro Redux bundles together Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. There were technical and gameplay improvements, including enhanced animations. It’s unclear what exactly we can expect from the Switch version, though we’ve included some additional information and a trailer below.
Metro Redux is the ultimate double game collection, including the definitive versions of both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, each rebuilt in the latest and greatest iteration of the 4A Engine for next-gen consoles and PC.
For the first time, console owners can expect smooth 60FPS gameplay and state of the art visuals that were once only available on high-end PC hardware.
Newcomers to the series will get the chance to experience two of the finest story-driven shooters of all time in one vast package; an epic adventure combining gripping survival horror, exploration and tactical combat and stealth.
Fans of the original games will find the unique world of Metro transformed with incredible new lighting, physics and dynamic weather effects, as well as a host of gameplay improvements and new features.
All the enhancements from the acclaimed sequel ‘Metro: Last Light’ have been transferred to Metro 2033 Redux – superior AI, controls, animation, weapon handling and many more. And both campaigns benefit from all-new melee animations, the ability to check your watch and ammo supplies on the fly, and new full-body player animations.
Those who favoured the more survival-horror oriented gameplay of ‘Metro 2033’ can play both campaigns in the ‘Survival’ Play-Style, a fraught, slow burn fight for survival. Those who enjoyed the more action-oriented gameplay of ‘Metro: Last Light’ can try the ‘Spartan’ Play-Style, providing Artyom with a powerful set of combat skills.
With the legendary Ranger Mode included to offer an extra layer of challenge and immersion, and all previous released DLC, Metro Redux offers 50+ hours of AAA FPS gameplay for an incredible price.
