Grab your flashlight, fix up that gas mask, and make sure your Joy-Cons are charged—4A Games and Deep Silver are bringing Metro Redux, a remastered bundle of the first two games in its post-apocalyptic FPS series, to the Nintendo Switch on February 28.
First released in 2014 for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC, Metro Redux includes both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, along with all the DLC for both games. Both games follow the story of Artyom, a Russian survivor of a nuclear apocalypse that's given way to a world filled with mutated monsters and ruthless gangs of humans. This release will be the first time any games in the Metro series have made their way to a Nintendo console.
Developers 4A Games say that the Nintendo Switch port of Metro Redux was "developed fully in-house." As the recent port of Alien: Isolation showed, in the hands of the right team a Switch port of an early PS4 or Xbox One game can come in looking even better than the original release, but it'll be quite the impressive feat if 4A has managed to get 2033 and Last Light running at high framerates on Nintendo's hardware.
2019's sequel to Last Light, Metro Exodus, broke from the formula of the first two games by incorporating open-world sections and was met with some backlash when it became one of the first titles to launch as an Epic Games Store exclusive for the PC. Two weeks before Metro Redux reaches the Switch, the year-long exclusivity deal for Exodus will expire and it'll finally launch on Steam.
