Originally released in 2016, the indie adventureĀ Hyper Light Drifter garnered acclaim for an emotional story centered around the ailing Drifter combined with retro visuals and brutally difficult gameplay, and now the game will finally be heading to the Nintendo Switch in just over a week from now.
