Deep Silver and 4A Games today announced Metro Redux, a package containing Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light. Retailers previously leaked the collection.

Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light will have their two campaigns as well as all DLC. The game will be offered physically and contains all content on a 16GB cartridge with no download needed.

Here’s the full announcement for Metro Redux, along with a trailer:

Switch already has one Saints Row game in Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package, which launched last year. Its sequel may now be on the way as well.

GameXplain spotted that French retailer Cultura listed Saints Row IV: Re-Elected for Switch, though that page has since been removed. A distributor in France has a similar listing up, and while it’s labeled for PS4, the consensus is that this was just a mistake – especially since the EAN product numbers are identical. The PS4 version has also been out for quite some time, and there’s a March 27 release date listed here that makes sense for Switch since it’s the only current console without the game.

For those that haven’t heard about Saints Row IV previously, here’s a handy overview and trailer:

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. 

A few days ago, Saints Row: The Third was updated on Switch. Version 1.5.0 is said to have included performance improvements and dynamic resolution. Take a closer look at the new update below.

A major update for Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package update is now available on Switch. In addition to implementing optional dynamic resolution, players can now use aim assist. A number of fixes have also been implemented.

Apparently the team isn’t stopping here. Gyro aiming is being looked to, and even more fixes are promised for the future.

Below are the full patch notes:

A few days ago, Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package landed on Switch. Digital Foundry has now taken a closer look at the game from a technical perspective. Note that the analysis was done prior to the first update dropping this week.

Unlike the last-gen versions of Saints Row: The Third, the game runs at 1080p when docked, which is an improvement. Of course, the resolution is reduced to native 720p in portable mode. Unfortunately, the use of quarter-resolution buffers can be harmful to the overall image.

Deep Silver hoped to have a patch ready for Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package at launch. Unfortunately, it ended up seeing a last-minute delay. It’s now confirmed that the patch is set to go live this Thursday, and will make making a number of improvements.

The full patch notes are as follows:

System: Switch
Release date: May 10, 2019
Developer: Volition / Deep Silver
Publisher: Deep Silver

There are certain genres that Nintendo consoles have historically missed out on. During the Wii generation, the Call of Duty style shooter was sorely missed – if not for an actual lack of ports (and well-forgotten games like The Conduit), then at least for the Wii’s inability to impressively render HD set piece spectacles. Open world games in the vein of Grand Theft Auto found similar enough success to spawn countless formulaic imitations, but the open world genre saw almost no representation on the Wii, and a handful of really bad ports on the Wii U. Perhaps the Wii’s greatest legacy was the perception that Nintendo consoles are bound to miss out on those “hardcore” blockbuster experiences.

Going along with the release of Saints Row: The Third – The Full Package, Deep Silver has prepared a special Deluxe Pack. Take a closer look at its contents in the unboxing video below.

Deep Silver is preparing for the release of Saints Row: The Third on Switch by releasing a series of gameplay videos that reminds fans about some of the game’s “best bits”. Footage was captured directly on Nintendo’s console.
