Let's gawk at Hyper Light Drifter's preposterously hot pixel art

We already knew action-role-player Hyper Light Drifter was easy on the eyes. That was a done deal. But this new trailer really hammers the point home. 

In case you missed the Kickstarter campaign that blew up last year, this gorgeous showpiece of pixel art is also a game, and judging from the footage of slashing and gunning we see here, a fine one. It follows a teleporting crusader tailed by an amicable drone through an advanced society collapsing in the ruin of mutant fossils, e-waste, and genetically engineered bio-freaks in incubators. Obvious differences aside, it’s kinda giving me a Secret of Mana flashback. 

No date has been announced, but the devs previously bumped the release till the end of the year for a longer incubation period. It's coming to WiiU, PS4, Vita, and computers everywhere, so you're probably covered.
