Remember Hyper Light Drifter? The somber neon action game took a lot of its cues from The Legend of Zelda and was a standout indie release of last year, with a Wii U version planned at one point. Unfortunately, the developer ran into significant development barriers—the game would have to be entirely rebuilt in a brand new engine to work on Wii U—and that version was scrapped. Still, recent comments from Heart Machine suggest that perhaps Nintendo fans still have hope.
A fan on Twitter recently expressed interest in playing the game on his or her Nintendo Switch, to which the developer replied that it’s being looked into. It’s obviously a far cry from outright committing to bringing it to the platform, but the game would no doubt be a perfect fit for the hybrid, and it would bring things full circle by finally giving the Nintendo audience a way to play it. Hopefully there’s more to this, but only time will tell.
