When Axiom Verge 2 creator Thomas Happ promised that the sequel would be out “before you know it,” he wasn’t kidding. In the recent Indie World Showcase, it was announced that the Metroidvania title would be out later today for the Nintendo Switch, PC (via Epic Games Store) and PS4.

Described as a sequel and prequel to the original, Axiom Verge 2 offers the same side-scrolling action platforming and exploration. However, it adds lots of new mechanics into the mix, especially when it comes to the breach map. This is an alternate dimension that can be switched to and has its own unique enemies, abilities and aesthetic while being intimately connected to the original dimension.

This is on top of new abilities and upgrade, new boss fights and tons of different secrets to discover. A release date hasn’t yet been confirmed for the PS5 version (though Happ previously stated it would launch on the same day) so stay tuned for any details and updates in the coming days.
