Former Nintendo employee Dan Adelman says that Nintendo are "being douches" about bringing Axiom Verge to the Nintendo Switch. He also states that they haven't confirmed they're bringing the game to Switch.
Curious. Did you write that thinking what a monkey would do. Head to desk. Repeat.
1. Nintendo feels threatened that the game looks like metroid. 2. Oh well, like which 19 people are actually gonna by Axiom Verge on Switch lol
@mikeslemonade The same people that will buy Metroid, which is A LOT. However Nintendo, in all of their wisdom, won't release a proper Metroid title will they?
Nintendo can't win. People complain if you do or dont bring a game to the system it does not matter WHAT they do.
At this point, anyone who #1 can form a sane thought path through this, and #2 isn't neck-deep in Nintendo hate thanks to the article giving them an opening to vent their childishness, is probably doing the same thing I am. There are plenty of people questioning why Axiom Verge isn't arriving quicker, and many of them are, like me, fans who enjoyed it on Wii U, but none of the people with any sort of rationality are calling Nintendo a douche over this. If Nintendo's reason turns out to be a bad one, once we actually know what it is, then I might be inclined to agree with this article, but as it stands, it's just a clickbait & hater-gate article, and the anti-Nintendo douches on this site are just gnawing at that bone for dear life.
Finally someone with the balls
As Randy Orton would say... 'Screw 'em!'
Nintendo was much worse during the 80's and 90's, thanks to Sega and Sony they were put in their place.
Nintendo's motto was, "3rd party developers will come to us if they want to make games for our game consoles." They never went after 3rd party developers, as they never needed to. Now big named 3rd party developers are mostly ignoring Nintendo as they don't have the installed base or the hardware developers really want to develop one. Switch will get a lot of Indies.
The article only states they're waiting on Nintendo to give the OK to release it, which is why it wasn't a launch title, and uses a Twitter quote as the headline. The story could have easily been at max 4-5 sentences. This is borderline click-bait.
Agreed, I read the article looking for the "douche" quote.
It's easier to give console warriors ammo with clickbait story titles with little content to them to rile both sides up. It's irresponsible writing at best and "they knew what they were doing with that headline" at worst.
What are you talking about, the quote is right there in the article.
You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.
You can kill more flies with insect killer than you do with honey. Your point?
Only if it's made for flies. Otherwise the flies will get stuck in honey and die.
Who the f*ck catches flies?
The writer of this article obviously
Not sure I want to play this game. I keep putting it in my cart and removing it. I don't know what it is. Back on topic, Nintendo needs to answer all developers in a timely manner. Their relationship with third parties has always been strained at best. They don't realize this isn't the 80's anymore.
Do yourself a favor and just get it. It's so fun. It's Metroid, Castlevania, Blaster Master and a few other oldschool games rolled into one. It also adds in it's own flavor. The music is especially outstounding. It's a great game, even moreso when you know it was developed by just one guy. What? Are you going to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild forever?
Guess im getting it now. Gotta check the price.
Get it... If you're a fan of 2D Metroid, then it's totally worth buying. I put it up there with Super Metroid, and this coming from a huge Metroid freak.
Why should they, this developers released the wii u version a year after initial launch. Why would Nintendo make them a priority while they treated them as a afterthought, i would have done the same in their shoes.

Balls indeed, but be awarely for attacks
It's because Nintendo doesn't want a game on their platform that rivals, or in this particular case, trumps their own games. Which is ironic, being they need all the help they can get..
