The acclaimed Metroidvania title Axiom Verge is coming to Nintendo Switch, publisher BadLand Games announced today. The game is scheduled to launch this August.
Originally released in 2015 for PS4 (and subsequently ported to PC, PS Vita, Xbox One, and Wii U), Axiom Verge is a side-scrolling action-adventure game in the vein of the original Metroid. Players explore a labyrithine alien world, using the power-ups you gradually acquire to battle bosses and delve deeper into the planet.
The game was previously only available as a digital title, but the upcoming Switch release will be the physical Multiverse Edition, which is also coming to PS4, Vita, and Wii U.
Along with a copy of the game, the Multiverse Edition includes a booklet with art and commentary, a double-sided poster of the game’s world map and items, and a documentary about the game’s creation by 2 Player Productions.
