Axiom Verge

Like many indie games on the platform, Axiom Verge looks to have done very well on Switch. Creator Thomas Happ shared some data about the performac on Twitter today.

According to Happ, digital sales for Axiom Verge on Switch “are near what the PS4 launch sales were, and when you add in physical, they likely surpass them.” Happ will also be able to use strong funds generated from the physical version for his son’s healthcare. If you recall, publisher BadLand said it would donate 75% of its share.


Update: More details on the update below.

Original: Axiom Verge has been updated on Switch. After applying the patch, you’ll be at version 1.0.3. in particular.

We’re aware of one new feature added in the latest update. Axiom Verge now features support for video capture, similar to a few other first and third-party games on Switch.

If the Axiom Verge update hasn’t already been downloaded automatically, you can force it from the home menu.

Thanks to MathieuWarnier for the tip.

The physical version of Axiom Verge launches on Switch and other platforms today. Creator Tom Happ teamed up with BadLand Games to make that possible.

We didn’t know about this previously, but BadLand Games will be donating 75% of its share to a special fund that will help cover the healthcare costs for Happ’s son, Alastair. It’s with a heavy heart that we say doctors failed to treat Alastair with a routine case of jaundice when he was just days old. This sadly left him with Kernicterus that severely impacts his motor control and hearing.

Happ says BadLand “didn’t want to publicize it, since none of us wanted to be seen as trying to use my son’s suffering as a marketing tool for the game.” Still, this is an admirable move on BadLand’s part.

Happ wrote the following on the Axiom Verge website today:

The physical version of Axiom Verge has a new release date on Switch. You’ll be able to purchase the game at retail in North America on November 21.

We’ll be hearing about the European release date later. BadLand Games will have news to share about the Wii U version down the road as well.

As for what’s included in the physical version of Axiom Verge, you’ll get a copy of the game, a behind-the-scenes documentary content on Blu-ray, an art book, 2-sided poster, and a soundtrack CD exclusive to Switch.

Axiom Verge only just came out on Switch this past Thursday, but creator Tom Happ is pleased with how the game is doing so far. On launch day, Happ wrote on Twitter that it “seems to be selling quite well”. That’s in spite of the fact that other high-quality titles debuted on the store, including Stardew Valley and Oxenfree.

Putting things into further perspective, Axiom Verge did better on Switch than Wii U in its first day:

Porting the game also went well:

Axiom Verge is coming to Switch next week, but some early gameplay has come in showing the new version in action. Check out the video below.

Update (9/12): The new date of October 5 is officially confirmed:

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.

The physical version of Axiom Verge was dated for October 17 awhile back. Unfortunately though, a delay is happening. Creator Tom Happ estimates that the physical copies will be pushed back by “a couple of weeks”. Both Switch and Wii U will be affected.

There might be one bright spot here. Happ put out a tweet asking fans if they’d like the digital version to release on the eShop as planned. Based on the Twitter poll, that may very well happen.


Axiom Verge was originally going to be on Switch sometime this month. However, that isn’t the case any longer.

With Axiom Verge being listed on retailer websites over the past few weeks, it seemed like the game had slipped a bit. Creator Tom Happ has now officially confirmed a release date of October 17. Since we only had a vague August release window previously, this “delay” isn’t entirely surprising.

Happ told one fan on Twitter today:


Two physical versions of Axiom Verge are up for pre-order on Amazon right now, the standard edition and the multiverse edition. Axiom Verge: Multiverse Edition comes with a double-sided poster, soundtrack CD and a “making of” documentary.

You can check out the standard edition here and the multiverse edition here.

The physical game is listed to be released on October 17th.
