Hyper Light Drifter gets a Japanese Physical Version on PlayStation 4

Playism has been working with developers for quite some time now to bring their games to Japan. Not only do we help with the initial break through to the Japanese market, we also help some indie developers tackle Japanese PlayStation publishing. Games like Screencheat, Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight and Assault Android Cactus are just a couple of examples of this.

Our next title in this line up is none other than the action packed Hyper Light Drifter from Heart Machine. For this release, we will also be doing a Japanese Physical Edition, our second Physical title in Japan (the first being Croixleur Sigma). Hyper Light Drifter Japanese Physical Edition will also have English, German, Russian, French, Italian and Spanish implementation.

Preorders for the physical disk have already started in Japan, and Hyper Light Drifter is scheduled to release in Japan on May 25, 2017.

You can find more information on our Japanese Publishing site.
