“Castlevania” producer Adi Shankar is reportedly working on an animated TV series adaptation of Alx Preston’s retro action RPG “Hyper Light Drifter”.
The 2D action RPG follows Drifter, a character using technology that’s long been forgotten to the game’s inhabitants, and who is suffering from an unknown illness. The Drifter’s energy sword can be upgraded with additional modules throughout the game.
Preston and Shankar are currently looking for writers to pen the adaptation, though the pair aren’t sure how to translate the game’s frenetic action for a passive audience. No other talent is yet attached.
