'Hyper Light Drifter' (ALL) Comes To Nintendo Switch - Screens

by Rainier on March 21, 2018 @ 1:05 a.m. PDT

Hyper Light Drifter is an action adventure RPG which features intense action, other-worldly environments and a captivating storyline.

Echoes of a dark and violent past resonate throughout a savage land, steeped in treasure and blood. Hyper Light Drifter is an action adventure RPG in the vein of the best 16­bit classics, with modernized mechanics and designs on a much grander scale.

Drifters of this world are the collectors of forgotten knowledge, lost technologies and broken histories. Our Hero is haunted by an insatiable illness, traveling further into the lands of Buried Time, hoping to discover a way to quiet the vicious disease much like its creator, Alex Preston, who suffers of a heart disease, major source of inspiration for this game.


Abylight Studios is currently working on the adaptation to Nintendo Switch closely with Yoyo Games, developer of the engine “GameMaker” used to create the game, as this title pushed the technical envelope.

Once the development is finished, Abylight will release the game worldwide.

Key Features:

  • From each character to subtle background elements, everything is lovingly hand-animated.
  • Easy to pick up, difficult to master; enemies are vicious and numerous, hazards will easily crush your frail body, and friendly faces remain rare.
  • Upgrade weapons, learn new skills, discover equipment and traverse a dark, detailed world with branching paths and secrets abound.

Currently available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, Hyper Light Drifter will be coming to Nintendo Switch in summer 2018.
