Publisher BadLand Games have today announced they’ve joined up with developer Thomas Happ to bring the acclaimed Metroidvania, Axiom Verge as a physical retail release. What is better about this announcement however is the way the physical edition is being brought out, not only will the game get a standard release but it will also be getting a “multiverse” version.
The multiverse version will include a copy of the game, feature a booklet with developer commentary and art, a double-sided poster as well as a “making-of” documentary on DVD. This particular version will be available on the Playstation 4, Vita and Wii U, meanwhile the standard version will only be made available for the Playstation 4.
Axiom Verge developer Thomas Happ discussed the announcement sharing:
“Fans have been asking for a physical retail version of Axiom Verge since the game originally launched. I’m extremely excited that the Multiverse Edition will be coming to retail soon. As a solo developer, it’s always been a dream of mine to see a game that I made end up on the store shelves!”
Both retail versions of Axiom Verge are expected to arrive in Q2 of this year, we will have to wait for now to find out an official release date.
