4A Games popular Metro series is seemingly making a debut on Nintendo Switch. There is a PEGI rating for Metro Redux that says we will soon be seeing the game on Nintendo Switch. The game has a PEGI 18 rating on Nintendo Switch, the same as other devices.
Metro Exodus will be the first game in the series to release on Nintendo Switch. Considering how demanding this title is, it will be interesting to see how well, Nintendo Switch can run it.
The good news is that Switch’s hardware handled The Witcher 3 pretty well and there are rumors of Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to Switch as well.
If the console is able to handle both of these games, Metro Exodus should be a piece of cake, a giant piece of cake to swallow, but nonetheless, a cake. The Nintendo Switch is powered by Nvidia’s custom TEGRA chip.
Metro Exodus originally released last year and has seen a moderate amount of success. The game follows the events of Last Light, the arc where the lead character survives continues in Metro Exodus.
The game also had a mature rating in the ESRB database and since there is no description of the game at PEGI, let’s take a look at what ESRB had to say about its mature elements.
This is a collection of first-person shooters (Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Night) in which players battle enemies in a futuristic, post-apocalyptic environment. Players assume the role of a soldier who explores underground tunnels and toxic outdoor landscapes, while battling humans and mutant creatures. Players use pistols, shotguns, machine guns, and explosive weapons to kill various enemies. Close-combat attacks involve the use of knives and/or bayonets to slash throats, or stab enemies in the head/chest. Large splashes of dark blood appear frequently during combat and cutscenes; blood also appears on walls and floors. Cutscenes sometimes depict characters getting executed (e.g., gunshots to the head). During the course of the game, players can enter a club environment in which some female characters are seen pole dancing; a topless woman is depicted dancing provocatively and close up during a lap-dance scene. In another sequence, the central character is depicted in bed with his girlfriend; the man briefly touches her breast, as the camera fades to black. Players’ character can consume drugs and alcohol in a bar setting; when the character smokes from a hookah, the screen warps and turns blurry. A similar effect occurs when players’ character drinks alcohol (e.g., screen blur and audio warp). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
Metro Exodus is currently available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. The game Metro Exodus is yet to arrive on Steam but it will later this year. Seeing the PEGI rating, we can expect the game to release on Nintendo Switch in the coming months.
