Thomas Happ, the creator of Axiom Verge, answered the call to thousands of loyal fans on Twitter when he finally confirmed that the game would be making its way to the Nintendo Switch. Originally released in 2015, the Metroid-like adventure gained massive praise for its unique take on the genre, along with a killer soundtrack to make the game feel that much more intense. Now Switch fans will get a taste of what the rest of us already know about.
The people have spoken! We decided to move the eShop release of Axiom Verge up to October 5! Updated retail date TBA soon. https://t.co/QCdEpKoyUM

As you can see from the tweet above, the game is set for release on October 5, or at least the digital version of the game will be coming. There's a planned physical release as well, but no details were given out for the retail copy. There was also no price point given, so your guess is as good as mine for the time being what it will be. The safe bet is $20 considering the indie title status and the amount of time the game has been out, but we'll see what Happ ends up doing with Axiom Verge at release.
