Original (9/11): Axiom Verge might be just a few weeks away on Switch. Over on the European eShop, a release date of October 5 is included in a new page listing. For what it’s worth, it’s listed for October 19 on the North American store.
It was announced last week that Axiom Verge’s physical version has been delayed by a couple of weeks. Due to that, the eShop version might be releasing early so that Switch owners interested in a digital copy won’t have to wait too much longer.
In other news, we have the file size for Axiom Verge on Switch. It’ll take up 119MB of space.

Dring did add that Switch sales this year are currently ahead of the Xbox One. The system is “well behind” the PlayStation 4, however.
It might not be wise to stress over this information. After all, we don’t have concrete sales data for the UK at the moment.
