PEGI, the Pan European Game Information organization, has given a ratings classification to a Metro Redux Switch port, possibly hinting that an announcement will be coming at some point in the near future. The possibility of a port for that console had already been revealed back in October, but now we have some proof.
The Metro games, based on the bestselling Russian novels of the same name by Dmitrij Gluchovskij, have found a large amount of success since they were first released, and the Metro Redux remasterings have proven to be very popular, releasing on multiple different platforms such as the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
Previously, the possibility of a Metro Redux Switch port had been unveiled by a Portugese retailer back in October as mentioned above. However, said retailer mistakenly claimed that the release date for such a port would be in December of 2019. Since 2020 is now here without a release, obviously that was wrong.
Since PEGI has actually rated the possibility of a Switch port, however, this does mean that we might very well be getting an announcement of such a thing at some point in the future. This would make Metro Redux the latest of the Triple-A third party games to come to the Switch.
A first-person shooter game about a post-apocalyptic nuclear wasteland wouldn’t ordinarily make it onto any sort of Nintendo console, but since Nintendo allowed Doom onto the Switch, anything is really possible at this point. Hopefully 4A Games can make the game still look good on the Switch, too.
While there’s no definite release date (or even an announcement) for the possible Metro Redux Switch port, all we have to do now is just wait and see if the game shows up in a Nintendo Direct event at some point in the near future.
