Axiom Verge 2, the sequel to developer Thomas Happ's acclaimed retro-styled Metroid-a-like, will finally launch for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC via the Epic Games Store today.
Nintendo announced the surprise news in this afternoon's Switch indie showcase.
To say we've been waiting a while for this sequel would be an understatement. Axiom Verge 2 was already four years in the making when it was announced in 2019, back then for launch in 2020.
Since then, understandably, things have taken a little longer, and its release date has been shuffled back a couple of times. Still, today's release is a very nice surprise.
