Metroidvania will come later to PS5, and has been one of the protagonists of the Indie Games Show.
The development of Axiom Verge 2 has had some other difficulties and, therefore, it has been delayed several times. Something totally understandable, since it is a game created solely by Tom Happ, its sole developer. There was some uncertainty with its date, but what a surprise we have been when it has been confirmed that it will be available from today in PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC via Epic Games Store.
The announcement took place at Nintendo’s Indie Games Show, where the Japanese firm has announced and given more details of the next independent games that will arrive on the platform. Axiom Verge 2 was one of the most anticipated, and without realizing it we can already enjoy it. Own Tom Happ has also confirmed on social networks that the version for PS5 will arrive a little later; although it can be played on said console thanks to backward compatibility.
The sudden launch is curious, considering that “end of the year” had been marked as the launch window after the latest delay. It will be a sequel to the game originally released in 2015, and we will have a metroidvania style adventure, in which exploration and now also time jumps will be key to increasing our arsenal of objects and achieving the objective.
As we prepare to test Axiom Verge 2 thoroughly so that we can talk to you in depth about the game, we leave you our analysis of the original title, which was a true tribute to the Metroid saga.
