Kicking off with an opening sequence befitting of the 16-bit era it pays homage to, Axiom Verge 2 pulls no punches with its setup. This club has everything; worldwide mega conglomerates, antarctic research stations, disappearing science crews, mysterious invitations, and portals to other universes, and one very impressive helicopter give you all of the pull you need to dig into the adventure that lies ahead, and this is all within the first fifteen minutes of the game. Things really pop off once you cross over into the alternate universe and your questions are answered with further, bigger questions.
Tom Happ announced today that he will be bringing his critically acclaimed game, Axiom Verge, to Xbox One and Nintendo eShop on Wii U later this year.

Developed solely by Tom Happ, Axiom Verge is a gentle nod to the inspirations of Metroid and many others that came after it, but only that. Axiom Verge then runs away with the idea to become something better. With a plethora of weapons, tons of exploration, massive boss battles, and a deep progression system makes Axiom Verge the result of a successful take on the “Metroidvania” style that succeeds in being more than just a clone of Nintendo’s popular franchise.
