Hyper Light Drifter will be launched for Nintendo Switch this summer, as announced by the company during a media presentation today. Hyper Light Drifter is a popular Indie game with terrific action/adventure combined with role-playing elements, and a moving story that fans couldn’t get enough of.
But the game never made its way to Wii U because the the development team at Heart Machine weren’t able to port it to that system, due to a lack of Game Maker tools.
Now when Nintendo Switch support Game Makers fans will now have a chance to play Hyper Light Drifter, just over two years since its initial release. Nintendo confirmed as such in a tweet, noting, “Journey through a beautiful, vast world riddled with dangers when #HyperLightDrifter launches on#NintendoSwitch #eShop this summer! #Nindies.” You can see the tweet below.
