The Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase was rather impressive prior to the system's launch, demonstrating some exciting download titles on the way to the console. A follow-up infographic showed a broad range of confirmed titles set for a 2017 release on the Switch eShop.

Of course, while a number of games are coming and plenty of developers are on board and happy to be so, not all have found open arms for their projects. Perhaps a surprising omission, to date, has been Tom Happ's Axiom Verge, a title that's been critically acclaimed and made its mark on the Wii U eShop last year; we loved it and awarded it a 10/10. Happ's publishing and business partner, Dan Adelman, has confirmed to us that they want to bring the game to Nintendo Switch but have so far not received approval.

The statement is below.

Many fans have asked us to bring Axiom Verge to the Switch. I have reached out to my old co-workers at Nintendo of America many times, but so far we haven't been approved for the platform yet. As soon as we get the green light, we'll drop everything and get right to work on the Switch version.

It'll be interesting to see if this changes in the near future. If there's sufficient fan demand, for example, perhaps progress could be made in bringing the title to Switch; as those behind the game make clear, they're eager to make it happen.
