Utilizing the Destructoid comments for an article on non-Metroid Metroid games, Thomas Happ teased that Axiom Verge will probably hit the Wii U in 2016.
I can’t commit to anything, but Axiom Verge will *probably* be available for Wii U in 2016. 3DS is quite a bit more difficult since the hardware is so completely different. Should Nintendo be reading this and decide to lend me a hand, that’d be VERY appreciated!!
Thomas Happ is the lone developer for Axiom Verge which released earlier this year on PlayStation 4 and Steam, with a PlayStation Vita version still in development. Happ previously discussed the difficulty in porting over the game to the Wii U hardware, though did not rule out the possibility. Now it appears that it is actually happening but will take quite some time. As for the 3DS, well, that could take even longer if at all.
