One game worth keeping an eye on is Axiom Verge 2. It was teased last month during the Nintendo Indie World Showcase and is scheduled to arrive on the Switch eShop at some point this year.
The game's creator, Tom Happ, previously mentioned how the sequel would mix Metroid and The Legend of Zelda, and now in the same interview (thanks for the tip, GoNintendo), he has revealed how there's likely to be even more Axiom Verge games released, provided the sequel replicates the success of the original.
This was his exact response:
That’s the plan. Though I might be a bit burned out on AV after finishing 2 and interject a different kind of game in-between.
Tom also mentions how he always reads player feedback and said despite the ongoing requests, he would never turn the series into a multiplayer title, but would make an effort to address any other requests:
I do read player feedback even if I don’t often respond to it. I’ll probably never turn Axiom Verge into a multiplayer game no matter how much people ask for it, but I try to address most other things if I can.
Would you like to see Axiom Verge become a full-blown series or add multiplayer? Share your thoughts below.
I would love multiple games in this series it’s one of my favorite games on the switch.
I’d love it if Nintendo loaned him the Metroid license. There are great indie creators who have taken up the mantle of Nintendo’s 2nd and 3rd tier games like Metroid, Mother and Advance Wars. I’d love to see Nintendo get these small teams to create games specifically for Nintendo consoles, even if it was just for a single game.
@Whalehome Me and my brother resurrected Fast RMX for the first time after launch week of the Switch. Man that is such a good game. Imagine what Shin'en could achieve with Nintendo's input and budget if they were to be given F-Zero
Glad he's against making it multiplayer. I don't see the need in adding multiplayer to every game.
I hope Tom Happ doesn't get burned out doing all the work himself. Maybe after AV2 he could get hired by someone like Yacht Club or Team Cherry or even Nintendo.
Highly anticipating the sequel, and anything that comes after that. Tom Happ did an excellent job with the first game, excited to see were the series goes for the next game!
On one hand, loved the original and will always be down for more games in the series. On the other, I hope he doesn’t get stuck designing AV games indefinitely. Some indie devs seem to end up that way, as fans keep wanting them to keep continuing their one series... he has a lot of talent and I hope he doesn’t spend all his time in one place, ya know?
Very much looking forward to the second though!
Hmm. Well I do hope that Axiom Verge 2 turns out well first of all, frankly the supposed Zelda inspiration and ugly graphics style/generally way less inpired look compared to the original has me a bit worried.
First make the second one as good as possible, heh?
I don't like the art style of the sequel. I prefer the original game's art style. I wonder why he decided to change it. I hope the music is good as the first one.
