Could Hyper Light Drifter be Coming to Nintendo Switch?

Will the gorgeous art style of Hyper Light Drifter be ported to Switch?

Angry Mob Games recently announced that not only would their SuperSmash Bros-esque fighter, Brawlout, be coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year, but that the eponymous protagonist of Heart Machine's Hyper Light Drifter would be joining the game's (currently) seven character roster. This news has some gamers speculating that Hyper Light Drifter might also show up on Nintendo's new console. 

The game was originally planned to appear on both PlayStation Vita and Wii U, but due to difficulty in optimizing performance for those platforms, as well as health issues related to lead designer Alex Preston, both versions were of Hyper Light Drifter were canceled in September 2016.

However, a more recent comment made by Preston on his Twitter account leads HLD fans to believe the game may be coming to the Nintendo Switch at some point in the future. 

In response to a fan, Preston replied, "looking into it!", but didn't clarify if he or the development team was currently working on an HLD port.

So, until an official statement comes from the Heart Machine development team, check out the announcement trailer below and stay tuned to GameSkinny for more news and information as it develops.
