Retro-style action-platform-exploration game Axiom Verge is finally coming to Xbox One on September 30th, creator Thomas Happ has announced.

The game has been heavily influenced by games like Metroid, Contra, and Blaster Master, and features over 40 weapons and tools, 100 upgrades, over 80 creatures, and almost 1,000 rooms.

“There’s a certain irony that Xbox One is the last console to get Axiom Verge. When I started development almost 7 years ago, Xbox 360 (in particular, the Xbox Live Indie Games service) was my target platform,” Happ wrote. “Like many indie developers, I vastly underestimated the scope of what the game would eventually become and the time needed to achieve my full vision, and by the time I was ready to launch, the development framework I was using (XNA) was no longer compatible with Xbox’s latest system.”

Axiom Verge will be available for $19.99, but there will be a 10% discount through October 10th.
