The spirit of Metroid lives on

There are plenty of upcoming Metroid-like games, but there is only one Axiom Verge, and it’s almost here at last. Creator Tom Happ shared new details in a blog post today including the PlayStation 4 launch date (March 31, 2015) and price ($19.99), as well as more delectable gifs.

One shows the address disruptor, a weapon that glitches enemies. Its origin can be traced to the Game Genie days. “I found it fascinating to uncover areas that I was never intended to see and corrupt different elements of the game to see how they would behave,” said Happ. Another gif, presented without comment, has a powerup that looks like a fun stand-in for Samus’ Morph Ball.

The game is also coming to PlayStation Vita (with Cross-Buy) and PC, but at later dates.
