Sad news for backers who wanted a Vita or Wii U version of Hyper Light Drifter. A new update on the Kickstarter page has revealed the game’s cancellation on these platforms. Developer Heart Machine has released a video explaining the cancellation. For a short summary, the developer has been overworked with all of the releases. It has been affecting his health negatively as well. The developer has cited technical difficulties as well. The only way to remedy the problem would be to remake the game for those systems.
Fortunately, Kickstarter backers who wanted a Vita or Wii U version will have two choices. Backers can get the game for another console, or they can get a refund. The video and the Kickstarter page goes into more detail.
Hyper Light Drifter is currently available on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
