Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition, after suffering numerous delays, has finally hit the Nintendo Switch in the UK. The even better news is that we were lucky enough to receive a copy of the swanky edition at Nitchigamer HQ:
What’s In The Box?
Here’s everything Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition for the Switch includes:
- The game cartridge, (obviously!).
- A Blu-ray documentary produced by 2PP with over 5 hours of extras
- An exclusive artbook
- A double-sided poster with a World Map
- The official soundtrack CD
As you can see, it’s a generous package that was well worth the wait. But what about the game itself?
Well, Axiom Verge is a Metroidvania title and an indie project created by Thomas Happ from none other than Petroglyph Games – a company formed by ex-Westwood Studios employees best known for the beloved Command & Conquer series.
In Axiom Verge, the player controls Trace, a scientist who, after suffering a crippling injury, wakes up in an ancient and high-tech alien world. What’s happened exactly? No one knows, although to be honest, they had us at Metroidvania…
Those that picked up Axiom Verge on the PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One, or even the Wii U, loved every second of the game and its satisfying exploration. Hopefully the Switch version lives up to the name then. Although with any luck, we’ll be posting our thoughts soon.
