Nintendo NX: Axiom Verge May Be One of The Launch Games
The next best thing, since we can’t have Super Metroid.
The Nintendo NX is now officially due out in March next year, and one reason that Nintendo apparently delayed it to then was to ensure that it would have enough games at launch- not having enough titles was the problem that plagued the Nintendo DS, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, and Wii U, so it’s high time that Nintendo did something about it.
One of these launch games may not even be a Nintendo game- if a comment made by Axion Verge‘s developer on a piece on the NX that was posted on USGamer is to be believed, it sounds like he is working to get the acclaimed hit indie spiritual successor to Super Metroid out on the NX, right as the NX is launching- although he can’t comment on it yet, he sounded fairly positive that it would be happening.
If it does happen, it will be one strong game for the NX to launch with- that, plus Zelda, confirmed for the NX too at this point, are already beginning to make a compelling case to upgrade to Nintendo’s new machine.
