The Axiom Verge 2 release date is now, following a surprise launch during Nintendo's latest Indie World presentation.

Creator Tom Happ first unveiled the game during the October 2020 Indie World presentation, though it was delayed from its intended release date of later that year.

Axiom Verge 2 boasts a larger map and several new features, including drones, enemy hacking, and a built-in speedrun mode.

Here’s how Happ describes it (thanks, Gematsu):

  • Expansive non-linear exploration of a huge interconnected map.
  • Hack any enemy with unique and interesting consequences for each.
  • Launch a remote drone with its own separate abilities and behaviors.
  • Speedrun Mode — play with a streamlined interface and additional features to facilitate speedrunning.
  • Plus one other major feature players will be excited to discover on their own

Despite being a numbered sequel, Axiom Verge 2 is a standalone experience you can play whether you’ve finished the original or never even heard of it — although the original is certainly worth giving a try if you haven’t.

You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
