It looks like a Wii U version of Axiom Verge is on the way. According to developer Tom Happ, the Metroid-inspired side-scroller will ‘probably’ see release on Wii U in 2016. A Nintendo 3DS port is less than likely, however, due to the ‘completely different’ nature of the hardware. Axiom Verge also takes inspiration from other such classics as Rygar, Contra, Bionic Commando and Blaster Master.
“…can’t commit to anything, but Axiom Verge will *probably* be available for Wii U in 2016,” Happ said. “3DS is quite a bit more difficult since the hardware is so completely different. Should Nintendo be reading this and decide to lend me a hand, that’d be VERY appreciated!!”
