Hyper Light Drifter's Latest Trailer Reveals Launch Date

By Ian Dransfield on at

One of Kickstarter's hotly anticipated titles finally has a release date: Hyper Light Drifter will be coming to PC and Mac on March 31. Wait a second...that's next week.

We once referred to the game as a 'surreal, indie Zelda' (if you're not aware, that's a positive thing). And since the game's Kickstarter in 2013 we've been keeping a close eye on it.

OK, so Hyper Light Drifter is arriving almost two full years after its initial estimated date of June 2014, but it did raise almost 24 times what it was asking for, so taking an additional 24 months isn't unreasonable, I'd say.

Hyper Light Drifter will arrive March 31 on PC and Mac, with console (and Vita) releases coming later in the year. There's also a new trailer to whet your appetite:

It's been a long time coming – I backed the project seemingly eight-hundred years ago – but we are finally about to get us some light drifting of the hyper variety. Neat.
