Deep Silver and 4A Games are bringing Metro Redux to Nintendo Switch, a double pack which contains definitive versions of both Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light.
Players can approach the campaigns in one of two modes; Survival, in which you’ll experience the game “as a slow burn survival horror” due to the lack of ammunition and filters for your gas mask, or Spartan, where these items are more prevalent.
The boxed edition of the game comes with both campaigns and DLC on a single 16GB cartridge, while those who want to buy the digital version will be able to download Metro 2033 Redux and Metro Last Light Redux individually from the Nintendo e-Shop.
There’s no word on whether the final instalment in the series, Metro Exodus, is coming to Switch.
Metro Redux is out 28 February on Nintendo Switch.

KT Racing have released a new trailer looking at some of the new and improved features found in their official Isle of Man TT simulator, TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 2.
One of the biggest changes sees the introduction of an open world that’s said to be a “biker's paradise.”
Players will have to “prove their worth” before taking on the island's iconic, 60km Snaefell Mountain course by competing in a series of road races, earning upgrades that can be tested out in the game world.
There’s no solid release date just yet, with the game said to be releasing on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC sometime during the “first semester” of this year.
Did you play the first game? What do you think of the new features? Let us know below.
Milestone, the team behind Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 3, has teamed up with real-world supercross rider and rapper, Adam Enticknap, for the game’s latest musical trailer.
“’Be One of Us’ was the first thing that came to mind when the developers of Monster Energy Supercross 3 came to me for this project,” stated Supercross athlete and rapper Adam Enticknap.
“The gaming features are so realistic and so sick that I knew I had to translate that authenticity. This truly has been a surreal experience and I hope fans dig the rap as much as I know they are going to love the new game.”
Monster Energy Supercross - The Official Videogame 3 is out February 4 on Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC and Stadia.

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and Lucasfilm have announced a new LEGO Star Wars game that encapsulates all nine main films.
“LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga marks our return to the franchise that kicked off the LEGO video game series. The game will give fans an all-new LEGO Star Wars experience with complete freedom to explore the LEGO Star Wars galaxy,” said Tom Stone, Managing Director, TT Games.
“It was an absolute pleasure to be part of the launch of the original LEGO Star Wars game and it’s equally exciting to now move the series forward and help create a new era of LEGO Star Wars games.”
Whilst this game will consolidate all the main Star Wars films, it doesn’t look like the collection will include any content from spin-off films Rogue One and Solo.
There’s no solid release date just yet, with the game scheduled to arrive sometime this year on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch and PC.

Funcom and developer Mighty Kingdom have revealed the release date for their light-hearted chibi-style, rogue-lite adventure game, Conan Chop Chop.
Players can choose from a diverse range of “badass” warrior gods (including Conan, naturally) with the option to customise weapons and items to match their playing style.
“We have had so much fun developing this game, that I actually have mixed feelings about the end being nigh,” admits Mighty Kingdom CEO Philip Mayes. “An action-adventure rogue-lite party-game. Featuring Conan. I mean, what more can you ask for?”
Conan Chop Chop is out 25 February on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch and PC.

Rebellion are bringing their undead shooter, Zombie Army Trilogy, to Nintendo Switch early next year, the studio has announced.
There’s no solid release date just yet, with the game said to be releasing “in the first half of 2020.”

Nintendo have released a new video giving us a look at the latest update coming to Super Mario Maker 2 on 5 December, which includes one of gaming’s most famous blades.
As well as legendary swords, the update also introduces a couple of new enemy types that will be available across all styles. There’s Spike, who throws spikey balls at players, and Pokey (who probably should have been called Spike) a moving cactus-like creature that comes in a variety of sizes and occasionally flies.
In terms of building materials, the update adds frozen coins, which, as the name suggests, is a coin that’s been frozen in ice. There’s also P blocks that can be switched on and off, and a dash block (Super Mario 3D World style only) that gives players a boost when jumped upon.
Finally, there’s a new mode called Ninji Speedruns that tasks players with registering the quickest time on special courses created by Nintendo. In a rather cool addition, Ninji ghosts of other players run alongside you as you compete for the fastest time and rewards.
What do you think of the update? Looking forward to wielding the Master Sword? Let us know below.
Nimble (formerly known as Holospark), have pushed back the release date for the Nintendo Switch version of Earthfall.
Earthfall: Alien Horde features 11 campaign chapters and 5 invasion maps in which players must face off against a variety of extra-terrestrial foes, utilising barricades and 3D printed weapons during periodic choke points in order to survive.
James gave the game a solid 7/10 when he reviewed the Xbox One version last year, noting that while the AI bots might not be the greatest team players, the game is still “ruddy good fun, if a tad disposable.”
Earthfall: Alien Horde is out 29 October on Nintendo Switch.
