Heart Machine’s colorful 2D action-RPG Hyper Light Drifter is coming to the Switch this summer, as revealed by Nintendo of America’s Twitter account mere hours after the Nindies Spring Showcase.

After a previous Wii U port was cancelled due to hardware issues, the announcement of Switch support for the Game Maker engine means that the pixelated adventure can at last make its way to a Nintendo console. After releasing on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in 2016, the game garnered critical praise for its aesthetic atmosphere, nostalgic appeal, and fluid combat.

Details on release date and pricing are currently sparse, so stay wired for more news on the title as we wait for it to drop this summer.
