Axiom Verge To Wii U This Year
« on: March 14, 2016, 04:19:06 AM »

Since nobody else will do it, apparently.

An award winning tribute to Metroid is landing on the Wii U before the end of the year.

Axiom Verge, the famous tribute to 8 bit Metroid titles that released on PlayStation 4 and PC last year, will come to the Wii U and also the Xbox One later this year.

There was some fear that the game wouldn't come to Wii U because of issues with the GameMaker engine originally used for the game as it did not natively support Wii U, but those issues appear to have been resolved.

I've heard very mixed reviews of this game - critically it did well, but some voices I trust weren't nearly as excited about the overall experience.


Then again, it's an indie game that was essentially made by one guy. Maybe promising but ultimately disappointing gameplay is all I should expect?  (That sounds damning, but isn't really meant to be. Promising ideas are sometimes enough to make an experience worthwhile.)


Are people here excited about this news?  Are you going to buy?

Very excited!
Wonder if the map will be on the PAD, or if it will support off-TV?
If it does use off-TV the pixel density could look really nice.

Definitely going to buy.  I haven't had a chance to play it, so I'm pretty excited.

*shrugs* Well, I really didn't care for it on PS4, but I'm glad for all those people Nintendo's not made a new Metroid game for.

If they've managed to sort out getting the GameMaker engine to work on Wii U, I wonder if this means we'll actually end up seeing that rumored Wii U port of Undertale as well.
