On the wings of enthusiasm for the excellent response from the public and critics received with the console version of Hyper Light Drifter on Switch, Heart Machine’s California developers are now ready to launch their iconic Metroidvania adventure on mobile iOS systems.
The mobile version for tablets and smartphones with the Apple will be identical to the one that appeared in the second half of 2018 on Nintendo Switch, including the exclusive contents for the hybrid console of the Kyoto company. The new transposition for iOS systems of the Special Edition of Hyper Light Drifter will thus boast all the elements that have characterized this wonderful realistic action on PC and console, with improvements and optimizations that will range from touchscreen controls to vibration with haptic feedback. The complete localization in Italian will also be present.
Who wants to use a controller, of course, can do it thanks to full compatibility with MFI gamepads. The lucky owners of iPad Pro, moreover, will be able to push the graphics engine to make the gaming experience incredibly smooth reaching 120fps. The iOS version of Hyper Light Drifter: Special Edition will be available on the App Store starting July 25 at a price of € 7.99: those who want to save on the purchase price can still pre-order the game on the Apple store for € 5.49, but only for a limited period of time.
