Axiom Verge creator on taking advantage of the GamePad

Axiom Verge will finally be launching on Wii U this summer. There will be some GamePad integration, which creator Tom Happ touched on while speaking with Nintendo Life.

Happ told the site:

It was kind of a no-brainer with this sort of game – exploration and item acquisition are the main things you want the player to be focused on. I think anyone who’s ever played a “metroidvania” has felt some frustration at trying to reconcile the tiny minimap with what they’re seeing on the big map in the menu, having to always switch back and forth – this ameliorates that a lot, plus in Axiom Verge’s case, the huge amount of weapons you normally have to scroll through in an item wheel. There’d probably be an uprising if I used that secondary screen for anything else.
