Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Metro redux for switch

Sounds like an excellent port that they put a lot of time into. I'll definitely get this once it goes on sale (and I clear a little of my backlog)

You're in luck; 4A have confirmed via Twitter that Metro Redux on Switch supports motion aiming.

So it looks like its a great port, as I was expecting with 4A handling it in-house. Like Alien Isolation, another port that really shows how much more capable Switch is then last gen platforms. Also nice to hear that input response is excellent.

It's also worth noting that the res isn't a straight 720p. From the written article on DF:

"The solution is what 4A calls temporal super resolution - which seeks to achieve clean edges while minimising artefacts. If you count pixels, the effective resolution seems to hang around 1280x720 docked, but pixel counts are only possible in motion when the TSR tech fails on specific edges. 4A itself pegs docked play at 1080p, but regardless, there are many variables that can lead to variations in image quality depending on what's happening on-screen. It's very dynamic, you can expect the current frame to vary significantly in terms of pixel count and the image you're presented with at any point will, of course, include a lot of data reconstructed from previously rendered frames."

They have?  I haven't seen that on their twitter page.

Someone asked them on Twitter and this was their response:



Damm, $25 for each game :(

If someone has a PS4 , these are $3.99 each at PSN.

No, they're not. And the PS4 versions can't be played portably, nor do they support gyro aiming which a lot of people prefer.

And there's no need to pretend to be disappointed, it is clear your only intention is to downplay the Switch as usual.

Well, both games are out now in Australia/New Zealand/Europe, and tomorrow in America, for those who are interested.

Also DF did a really interesting interview with the devs where they talk about how they got the PS4/Xbone version running on the Switch hardware: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2020-metro-redux-the-making-of-an-impossible-port

There's a ton of footage up on youtube by now and I must see it looks really, really good.

If you haven't played the Metro games before I highly recommend them, they offer a very unique and atmospheric experience that's a lot more intelligent than your average shooter.

I have not. And im kinda feelin a shooter. An open world action game could really hit the spot to tho. Ill probably either pick up this or saints row 4 or finally get to shadows of the damned after I beatt darksiders 2 next month.

Out of those two, I'd really recommend Metro over Saint's Row if you're gonna get the latter on Switch, Saint's Row the Third was a really terrible port on Switch which doesn't bode well for 4.
