Hyper Light Drifter Reveals Price Details, Will Not Release On Console in 2015
In an interview with the TiC podcast team, Hyper Light Drifter creative director Alex Preston admitted that the console versions of the game, including the Wii U, would likely release after 2015 and the MSRP would be $19.99.
When asked about the release date, Preston said "We have not yet announced the release date. We have only said 2015 for PC first. Consoles take some time so, for example, Xbox One has a certification process that you have to go through."
