It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything of the Axiom Verge port, but Tom Happ, the game’s creator, says it’ll release in the upcoming months.

When asked about the lack of a Vita version, Happ responded that the port was slated for a December release, but a January or February release is now more likely.

Axiom Verge is a Metroidvania game where players take control of Trace, a scientist with a fatal injury who awakens in an ancient high-tech world.

    FINALLY. Hoping for a sale soon, because I assume it’s crossbuy.

      Yes it’s cross-buy and was on sale recently. Think it was $6 or $9 in US/ Can store, can’t remember exactly but I got it then ready (haven’t played the PS4 version, this is going to be a personal Vita exclusive!).

        Are we absolutely sure that Axiom Verge is going to support cross-buy, buddy? I picked it up on PS4 while it was on sale last week, so I sure hope so!

        I started it over the weekend, but if the Vita version really is only a month or two away, I may hold off playing any further until then :0)

        • B91212

          Yes, there is a blog post on the developer’s (Tom Happ) Axiom Verge website where it states that it is ‘retrospectively cross-buy’

            Thanks, man! That’s awesome news :0)

        It has never been cheaper than $13 in the US.

        • B91212

          My apologies, you’re right. I mixed it up with Titan Souls that I purchased at the same time in a sale (Titan Souls: $6.75; Axiom Verge $12.59). Seems a strange price for AV, can’t remember if I had a 10% coupon to use up or something.

      If you’re a fan of pixelicious 2D platformers, I’d certainly recommend Axiom Verge. Particularly if it’s still on sale! I’ve only played the first hour or so, mind.
