The appearance of a fundamental long-time asymptotic regime in the two space one time dimensional hyperbolic nonlinear Schrodinger (HNLS) equation is discussed. Based on analytical and numerical simulations, a wide range of initial conditions corresponding to initial lumps of moderate energy are found to approach a quasi-self-similar solution. Even relatively large initial amplitudes, which imply strong nonlinear effects, eventually lead to local structures resembling those of the self-similar solution, with appropriate small modifications. This solution has aspects that suggest it is a universal attractor emanating from wide ranges of initial data.
