Axiom Verge is one of the better metroidvania games from the past few years. I might have only labeled it as above-average in my original review, but it’s definitely the kind of game that has legs to last a long time and enough under the hood to change opinions as more people play it. Thanks to it finally expanding onto other platforms, more people will get a chance to do just that.
We already know the game is coming to the Xbox One and Wii U in the near future, and now we have an exact date for the long-overdue PS Vita release. Fans will be able to play this game thought portable means for the first time on April 19.
As an added bonus, Axiom Verge also supports cross-buy, so those who already own the game on PlayStation 4 will not be forced to double dip and buy it again.
On a surprisingly emotional update on PlayStation Blog, one-man development team Thomas Happ thanks fans for their support, stating that the game’s success will be able to help support him and his family.
Be sure to pick up Axiom Verge on the PS Vita on April 19. Be sure to download it if you already own the game on the PlayStation 4.
