Troubles for Hyper Light Drifter on the Wii U

As Hyper Light Drifter continues along its development a recent update from the team explains that the WiiU version is in some trouble.

While initially planned as a platform to host the upcoming indie title, Heart Machine, developer of Hyper Light Drifter, has run into a bit of a snag. Some contract issues between their engine developer and the platform holder have muddied the waters about the possibility of a port.

While Heart Machine is handing out the surveys for backers to choose their console of choice and the WiiU is included, they’re prepared to give backers a second option should the Nintendo console be unavailable. While it’s not the most ideal situation, Heart Machine is still trying to move forward with the port to the Big N.

In the meantime, they hope to have more details on a possible release date to give us in March. You can read their entire February update here.
