It’s a question of time to announce that after the August 2014 PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC launch, Metro Redux Bundle will surface on the Nintendo Switch.
The Pan European Game Information Board’s (PEGI, the European equivalent of the US’ ESRB) website reveals that they rated the Nintendo Switch port of Metro Redux Bundle, even though this version hasn’t been announced yet!
„In 2013, the world was devastated by an apocalyptic event, annihilating almost all mankind and turning the earth’s surface into a poisonous wasteland. A handful of survivors took refuge in the depths of the Moscow underground, and human civilization entered a new Dark Age. The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside.
You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised underground. Having never ventured beyond the city limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat. But will they even listen? Rather than stand united, the factions of the Metro are locked in a struggle for the ultimate power, a doomsday device from the military vaults of D6. A civil war is stirring that could wipe humanity from the face of the earth forever.
Including the epic single-player campaigns of both Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light, Metro Redux takes you on a journey from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind,” the product description reads. We already wrote in October that a Portuguese retailer, GamingReplay, has listed the bundle for the Switch (but has been delisted since), and they wrote it could cost 45 euros/dollars when it launches.
There’s another port that was rated: it’s the PlayStation 4 version of Void Bastards. This strategy FPS, inspired by System Shock 2 and BioShock, launched in May on Xbox One and PC, and the PlayStation 4 version hasn’t been announced.
So the two (or three?) games just need time to be properly announced by their respective publishers, namely Deep Silver and… Humble Bundle? (Although there might be a new publisher on console for Void Bastards.)
