The Metroidvania indie hit Axiom Verge has seen a lot of success both critically and commercially over the past couple years, so it makes a lot of sense that the game is getting a retail release to celebrate its impact. Previously planned for launch on Wii U, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita, today it was also confirmed that Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition will be coming to Nintendo Switch as soon as August 2017.

Coming to stores that sell games in just a couple months, this special edition of Axiom Verge will include the game itself, a double-sided poster (which includes a map of the game), an art book titled The Art of Axiom Verge, and an exclusive making-of documentary produced by 2-Player Productions and featuring Axiom Verge creator Thomas Happ. The Switch’s physical version will cost $10 more—$39.99 versus the $29.99 price tag seen for the PS4, Vita, and Wii U’s Multiverse Edition—but this will be offset by the inclusion of the game’s soundtrack in this package.

Do you plan on picking up this classic when it comes out physically? If you’ve already played it, is Axiom Verge worth a double dip? And are you glad this Multiverse Edition is coming to the Nintendo Switch? Let us know in the comments below!

Our Verdict

Hey all! I've been a gamer since I was three. I'm one of those people with gaming so ingrained in them that watching my father play Super Mario 64 is actually my first memory I can recall. I love writing too! I'm writing an original fantasy series that takes place in another universe; it may take some inspiration from some of my favorite franchises. I've been a journalist for a few years, have worked on local and national teams, and have garnered experience assigning stories, editing, writing, interviewing, hosting a television series, running a YouTube channel, and doing other stuff that's more fun to mention in conversation. Bios can drag on. Anyway, I'm super stoked to be a part of the Gamnesia team! Thanks for having me!
