urban-trial-freestyle-2Hyper Light Drifter

After some time in limbo, Heart Machine has now cancelled the Wii U version of Hyper Light Drifter.

This is due to various technical obstacles, as YoYo Games and Nintendo haven’t been able to come to an agreement about the GameMaker engine involved. Therefore, a Wii U version would have to have be remade from the ground up, which would involve much more work and resources than a simple port.

You can listen to the full explanation from Heart Machine below.

– Wheel portal balanced: more intuitive and forgiven.
– Lightball portal balanced: accept light and darker colors.
