“Axiom Verge” Physical Release to Be Published by BadLand Games & Thomas Happ Games
Fans of Axiom Verge can soon own a physical copy of the highly-praised platformer. BadLand Games and Thomas Happ Games are ready to release the award-winning title’s “Multiverse Edition” for PlayStation 4, Wii U, and PlayStation Vita.
Axiom Verge took Thomas Happ five years to create by himself. The game was launched back in 2015. It was met with critical acclaim and numerous awards. So, it makes sense that the game is seeing a physical release.
“Axiom Verge is one of the most iconic Metroidvanias out there, and we are thrilled to be able to bring the Multiverse Edition to retail. Platformer fans can now experience Axiom Verge to the fullest — thanks to a few neat extras and a special ‘behind the scenes’ look at all the work that went into the game,” said Luis Quintáns, CEO of BadLand Games.
“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!” said Thomas Happ, Founder & Sole Developer, Thomas Happ Games.

Fans can buy the special edition for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Wii U. A release for other platforms hasn’t been confirmed yet.
A Standard Edition of Axiom Verge will also be available only on PS4. It’ll include a physical copy of the game.
