Fans of Metroidvania games have been waiting for it for quite while, but it’s finally there (well… almost!): Axiom Verge will be released on Wii U on September 1st! And no preferential treatment for anyone: both Europe and North America get it on the same day. This version of the game will cost $19.99 / 19.99€, and require about 300MB of free space on your console or external HDD.
Thomas Happ posted a blog post on the game’s official website, in order to make the announcement. He also took this opportunity to talk a bit about the game, what inspired him, and more.
Here’s what he said about this Wii U version of the game:
So for so many reasons, Axiom Verge truly belongs on a Nintendo platform. It was only because of Blitworks’ amazing technical skill that we were able to make that happen, and I’m grateful for their work on the pixel-perfect port. Even though the game’s been out for a little while on other systems, the Wii U version is probably the best one. It’s the only console version to support leaderboards for the dedicated Speedrun Mode. And the Wii U GamePad will allow people to have the world map viewable at all times without pausing the game – or to play Off-TV.
It’s been too long in coming, but Axiom Verge is finally home.
