Former Nintendo Indie Boss Working on PlayStation Exclusive

Dan Adelman, Nintendo's former indie boss, has confirmed that he's working on Axiom Verge, "a retro-styled 2D "metroidvania" action-adventure coming to PS4 and PS Vita, inspired by such classics as Rygar, Contra, Bionic Commando, Blaster Master, and, of course, Metroid."

Adelman made the announcement on his blog, saying:

Aside from the complete lack of any income, these two past months since I left my job have been amazing. I’ve had lots of discussions with many developers about all kinds of interesting, quirky, wonderful stuff. These conversations are all in varying stages, and I’m sure I’ll be making some future announcements soon.

But today I’m super excited to announce the first official game I’m working on: Axiom Verge!

Axiom Verge will be launching first on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. A Steam version will be released at some point later.
