BadLand Games and Thomas Happ Games have announced they will bring Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition to the Nintendo Switch – alongside the Wii U, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita.

Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition will include a plethora of creative and nostalgic in-box content that will please any die-hard fan or newcomer to the award-winning Metroidvania title.

This special edition includes a specially commissioned and exclusive 2 Player Productions documentary about Thomas Happ and the making of Axiom Verge. The Multiverse Edition will also feature a copy of the game and a deluxe booklet with developer commentary and art, along with a double-sided poster. If you pre-order before release, you’ll also receive the atmospheric CD soundtrack.

2 Player Productions – known for Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, Double Fine Adventure!, and the Amnesia Fortnight documentaries – spent quality time with Thomas Happ to create a singular and emotive behind-the-scenes account for fans. This documentary addresses topics such as the development process of the five-year solo production, the games that inspired Axiom Verge, and Thomas Happ’s challenge of balancing a game development career and the need to care for his son with special needs.

After a lab accident, Trace awakens on the mysterious alien world of Sudra. Unsure if he has been beamed to a distant planet or the far future, or even trapped in an elaborate computer simulation, Trace begins his quest to defeat the ominous being known as Athetos and uncover the secrets of Sudra.
