Only Switch is interesting. I'm sure it'll come to other platforms eventually though. 

 

Things come out for the switch and then kind of silently release to other platforms (PC) like that Senran Kagura game that was only on switch then came to steam.

I remember picking up Axiom Verge because everyone said how amazing of a metroidvania it was and while it is fun, its no where near the levels I'd place something like Super Metroid or even Ori. That said, I am looking forward to another release in the series.

Axiom Verge was one of those games for me that I kept feeling like I should like more based on its various cool elements. It just never really came together for me or something and I never even finished it. I think I stopped at around 80% through or so. The boss fights were terrible, the 800 different weapons where only three or four were really useful were annoying, combat in general wasn't fun. Really the aesthetics and music kept me playing I think? 

 

For such an obvious Metroid rip, it dropped the ball in the most crucial aspects I think

I'm sure I'll play it for awhile, get lost and never finish it like I did the first one. I did love the music and have the sound track on my phone for the original though. 

Soundtrack was the best part of the game for me and kept me playing well past boredom honestly.

Yeah it was. I'm also assuming this eventually comes to PS4/X1 otherwise I'll never end up playing it.

I'm sure it will. I wouldn't be surprised if it dropped on all platforms at the same day. He just decided to announce it for Switch first. Because reasons, I guess?

 

I dunno though. Games like these I always prefer playing on a handheld. I'd skip it if wasn't on Switch.

It would have been crazy to think this wouldn’t land on PlayStation sooner or later. Wasn’t the first game originally only on PlayStation?

 

I assume an Xbox version will be a thing eventually as well.
