Axiom Verge Announced for Xbox One and Wii U

Axiom Verge, that lovely and fun indie title that gave fans of Metroid that loving feeling has just announced for the Xbox One and Wii U. Yes, after watching your friends, family and even your enemies enjoy Axiom Verge on the PC and PlayStation 4, you’ll finally be able to enjoy yourselves now.

Axiom Verge is a retro-style action-platform-exploration game done in a 16-bit style and was heavily influenced by games like Metroid, Contra, Blaster Master, and other classics, but with very modern design sensibilities. It also gives you power over glitches like those found in classic games, allowing you to scramble enemies, corrupt environments, and enter hidden areas as you explore this hostile alien world and uncover your role within it.

I’ve played this both on the PC and PS4, and well…I loved it. You can check out our review of Axiom Verge here. So I’m happy to see that this gem will be released onto other platforms as well, especially since this game needs to be played… No,this gem needs to be experienced by everyone.


Currently there is no release date for either ports, other than they will be released sometime later this year. And no, there’s still no word on the PS Vita release, sorry folks.
