News: The popular Metroid-vania game Axiom Verge is headed to the Nintendo Switch later this summer.


Axiom Verge is headed to the Nintendo Switch. BadLand Games and Thomas Happ Games have revealed that Nintendo’s newest console will be getting Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition, alongside the Wii U, PS4 and PS Vita. Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition will include a plethora of creative and nostalgic in-box content that will please any die-hard fan or newcomer to the award-winning Metroidvania title.

This special edition includes a specially commissioned and exclusive 2 Player Productions documentary about Thomas Happ and the making of Axiom Verge. The Multiverse Edition will also feature a copy of the game and a deluxe booklet with developer commentary and art, along with a double-sided poster – plus if you pre-order before release, you will receive the atmospheric CD soundtrack as well.

2 Player Productions – known for Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, Double Fine Adventure!, and the Amnesia Fortnight documentaries – spent quality time with Thomas Happ to create a singular and emotive behind-the-scenes account for fans. This documentary addresses topics such as the development process of the five-year solo production, the games that inspired Axiom Verge, and Thomas Happ’s challenge of balancing a game development career and the need to care for his son with special needs.

"People often asked me about the early days of Axiom Verge – about how I was able to make a game completely on my own over the course of five years of evenings and weekends while holding down a full time job. The long-form documentary format really made it possible for me to take the time and explain that process as well as go into some detail about the difficulties of balancing work and family responsibilities."

“This has been a dream project for us. A level of access like this is rarely seen in making-of documentaries about entertainment properties – particularly with video games. We’re immensely grateful to Thomas Happ Games and BadLand Games for making our documentary a cornerstone of the Multiverse Edition,” said Paul Levering, Producer for 2 Player Productions.

“We’re proud to be working with 2 Player Productions on making Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition an even more valuable collector’s item with the inclusion of this unprecedented look into the life of a renowned indie developer,” said Luis Quintáns, CEO of BadLand Games. “We’re also pleased to confirm that the Multiverse Edition will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch. After fielding questions from the player community for some time now, it feels great to finally go public with this exciting news.”

The World Of Axiom Verge:

After a lab accident, Trace awakens on the mysterious alien world of Sudra. Unsure if he has been beamed to a distant planet or the far future or trapped in an elaborate computer simulation, Trace begins his quest to defeat the ominous being known as Athetos and uncover the secrets of Sudra.
