Retro Style Axiom Verge Headed To PS4, Vita On March 31

Old-school shooter fans unite!

One of my new favorite terms is "Metroidvania," which describes an old-fashioned game structure that blends the classic Metroid and Castlevania styles.

That's what we find in Axiom Verge, which was actually developed by a lone individual. As revealed over at the PlayStation Blog, the retro title will launch for PlayStation 4 and Vita on March 31 for the reasonable price of $19.99. It does support Cross Buy, too; buy one version and get the other at no extra charge. Developer Tom Happ said making the game has been "the greatest experience of my professional life."

As Trace, a scientist in a hostile alien world, we have to use power-ups, explore our environment, and escape unscathed. Happ revealed some of those power-ups; there's Nova, Drill, and Address Disruptor. Check the link above for the full descriptions of each. You can also find some super cool gameplay at the Blog, too!

Everything is retro style. How about retro PS1 style JRPGs or something?
