A couple months back, it was announced that Hyper Light Drifter may not actually make it to the Wii U, as originally promised. Due to contractual issues with the developers of GameMaker – the engine it was developed for – it seems that the Wii U port has been put out to pasture, though there is still hope that the game could still possibly see release on the platform. That all being said, the game is set to release on consoles late this summer, and the announced Collector's Edition looks pretty awesome.
Along with the code that will allow users to download the game, this edition will also come with a light blue SNES cartridge, as well as an SNES-style box, a 24-page manual, and a world map. Unfortunately, the SNES cartridge actually doesn't work in a real console, but it will nonetheless be a nice display piece. You can find the Collector's Edition through here, hopefully there'll be some good news on the Wii U front soon.
