, which includes the enhanced versions of Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, will be available for Nintendo Switch on February 28, 2020.
Metro Redux for Switch will be sold as a boxed edition that includes both games as a single campaign. All the DLC for Metro: Last Light, which adds about another 10 hours of playtime, is also included.
The box will contain a single 16GB cart with no additional download required. If you pre-order the Ranger Cache pack from selected retailers you’ll also get a bunch of additional goodies.
Included in the Ranger Cache pack is a Metro Redux pin badge set, game case sleeve, double-sided alternate artwork inlay, four double-sided art cards, and an A2 double-sided poster.
If you prefer digital downloads, you’ll have to purchase Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux separately from the Nintendo eShop.
Metro Redux gives you the choice of playing through the campaign in two different ways. You can opt for the “Survival” play style for a slower, survival horror experience. Or you can choose the “Spartan” play style if you want more of an action-based first-person shooter campaign.
Metro Redux previously came to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2014. In our Metro Redux review, we said that “despite their seemingly miserable setting, both Metro games are in fact fun, diverse shooter-adventures.”
The double game compilation has you playing as Artyom as he navigates the post-apocalyptic tunnels of the Moscow underground in the year 2033. While it’s dark and full of warring factions down there, it’s better than trying to deal with the poisonous wasteland and its deadly mutants on the surface.
Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light are the first two games in the series. In 2019, a third part called Metro Exodus came out, which we gave an 8.5 in our Metro Exodus review.
