'Metro 2033' And 'Metro: Last Light' Are Coming To Switch Next Month
Publisher Deep Silver has announced that Metro Redux, a collection containing remastered versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, is headed to Nintendo Switch on February 28th.Incredibly, it sounds like both games - as well as their respective DLCs - will be housed on one 16GB Switch cartridge, with no extra downloads required. Consider my mind blown.
While both Metro games are undeniably excellent, and well worth checking out, if you did want to buy one over the other, you'll be able to do so. Nintendo has confirmed that Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light will be available to purchase separately via the Nintendo eShop. Again, with all the previously-released DLC included.
Check out the reveal trailer below.
Metro, if you're unfamiliar, is a thoroughly fantastic series of survival horror/post-apocalyptic games based on the novels of Dmitry Glukhovsky. Set in Moscow in the year 2033 following a devastating nuclear event, an entire generation of humans have been raised in underground in order to escape the many monstrous threats that have dominated the world above.
Without giving anything anyway, both games deal with some pretty meaty themes. If you're into stuff like The Last Of Us and Fallout 3, you'll find an awful lot to love in these games - trust me. Metro Exodus, the last game in the series, was also bloody brilliant... but I don't know when we'll see that come to Switch, if ever.
"Developed in-house by 4A Games," Deep Silver wrote in a press release. "Containing two complete campaigns which combine to create one epic solo adventure, Metro Redux will immerse players into one of the most atmospheric worlds in gaming fully brought to life on their Nintendo Switch."
"In addition to both campaigns, Metro Redux contains all the Metro: Last Light DLC offering a further 10 hours of bonus content. Players can experience life in the Moscow Metro through two unique Play Styles: use the 'Survival' Play Style to approach the campaign as a slow burn survival horror or tackle it with the combat skills of a Ranger with the 'Spartan' Play Style."
If you're really into Metro, there's also a special "Range Cache" pre-order pack available at select retailers. For your troubles, you'll get a Metro Redux pin badge set, a game case sleeve, double-sided alternate artwork inlay, four double-sided art cards, and an A2 double-sided poster. Yes, that is rather a lot of double-sided stuff, isn't it?
