Poor, poor Wii U and PlayStation Vita players, no Hyper Light Drifter for you.
In an update on Kickstarter, developer Alex Preston (of the independent company Heart Machine), provided a video explaining that the previously-announced Wii U and PS Vita versions of the game have officially been cancelled.
The reasoning for the cancellation was cited as health issues. Kickstarter backers that opted for either the Wii U or PS Vita version of the game will be able to exchange for the PS4, Xbox One, or PC versions, or request a full refund for the title.
Hyper Light Drifter is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It currently sits in the low 80’s on Metacritic.
To be honest, in 2016, it’s really not worth releasing on either pieces of hardware (at least most of the time). I personally rather just see Heart Machine take a break, and then move onto the next project.
