The release of Axiom Verge on Nintendo Switch has been officially postponed to October 17th, according to creator Thomas Happ. The title was originally scheduled to come to the Switch sometime in August, coinciding with the release of the game's special edition on all platforms; however, given the lack of news about the Switch port ever since its announcement back in June, many people had already guessed that the game wouldn't be able to reach its launch window.
The Multiverse Edition of Axiom Verge—a special edition that includes a poster, an art book, and a making-of documentary about the game, celebrating Axiom Verge's success in its first two years on the market—was planned to release this August as well, and it has been delayed as well. According to Amazon, this physical release for PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and Nintendo Switch will now launch on October 17th as well.
Axiom Verge is a "Metroidvania"-inspired action-adventure game by indie studio Thomas Happ Games, which first released on PlayStation 4 and PC in early 2015. The game was released on PlayStation Vita, Wii U, and Xbox One last year.
