Image & Form’s SteamWorld Dig 2 emerging September 21st on Nintendo Switch for $19.99!

Howdy, partners!

SteamWorld Dig 2 hits Nintendo Switch on September 21st for $19.99 / €19.99 / £14.99 or your region’s equivalent. That’s something I’ve wanted to write for a very long time! We revealed it today during Nintendo’s Nindies Showcase in a brand new trailer. We tease new worlds, enemies, upgrades and challenges.

We also revealed 10 beautiful new screenshots. Head over to the official game page for all new images and other details.

Release Date and Price

As mentioned above, SteamWorld Dig 2 world premieres on Nintendo Switch in America and Europe on September 21st. According to Almanac.com it’s the penultimate day of summer, so we don’t miss our original summer release window! Isn’t that something?

The game will be available for download on Nintendo eShop for $19.99. That’s twice the price of the original SteamWorld Dig. But since it’s at least ten times as good it’s more than a nice deal. You can expect around 10 hours of gameplay and multiple boss battles in a big, sprawling world which you’re free to explore and dig through at your own pace. The game is even longer for those of you itching to find all secrets and unlockables (and there are plenty).

As the Captain of a Genesis star ship, you journey into uncharted space on this ultimate mission and you must create a crew capable of fighting the alien infestations that threaten it. Take DNA from the aliens that you  encounter and splice it with your crew members to give them new abilities and a better chance to prosper within a hostile galaxy.

Your goal: Find new homes for humanity’s DNA and save the species from extinction. Genesis: Alpha One is heading to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2018.

 

Sword Legacy: Omen

As Uther Pendragon you will embark on an epic journey through Broken Britannia to avenge your fallen lord and recover the long-lost sword, Excalibur. Fight alongside a rag tag band of unlikely
heroes to defeat your enemies in tense, turn-based tactical combat. Crush your enemies’ willpower and watch them flee the battlefield or even turn on their comrades. Use the environment to your
advantage, moving your heroes into cover and setting the enemy ablaze with explosive barrels before finishing them off with brutal, visceral overkill moves. Sword Legacy: Omen is heading to PC
in 2017.

 

Yoku’s Island Express
