Metro Redux may come to Switch in December

It looks like 4A Games’ Metro Redux may-possibly-conceivably-imaginably-feasibly-weather permitting and all those other words that mean "we don't really know for sure yet" be coming to Nintendo Switch in December.

Via wccftech, a listing has been unearthed for the title on a Portuguese retail site called GamingReplay.

It looks like it'll set you back around £40, if it does indeed arrive just in time for Christmas as the listing indicates.

Here's some official bumf about Metro Redux, which squishes together Metro: 2033 and Metro: Last Light, that you may only need to briefly skim if you haven't played either campaign before. Word counts, people! They exist to be served:

"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."
