Axiom Verge

Axiom Verge launched today on Wii U, much to the anticipation and excitement of many Nintendo fans. We thought it was an absolutely outstanding piece of game design, praising its innovative gameplay and gorgeous visuals. Of course, as with any 'Metroidvania', it's a pretty dense game by design, and there's no doubt many things you'll miss out on the first time around.

To help out with this, a brief tips and tricks video for the game was recently posted on Youtube, narrated by none other than Dan Adelman. Here, you'll get some pointers on basic combat and exploration strategies, something that new players may want to watch before diving in.
