In the last six months, we here at Image & Form have been busier than ever. SteamWorld Dig 2 launched on multiple platforms to great fanfare. Just recently we brought both the original Dig and the ultimate edition of SteamWorld Heist to Nintendo Switch. But we’ve kept quiet on purpose about one platform… because it’s very special to us. It’s the hardware that put us on the map with the original game, and now that we’ve come full circle, we couldn’t be more proud.
I’m thrilled to announce that SteamWorld Dig 2 launches on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems next week on February 22! The release will be exclusive to Nintendo eShop and go for $19.99 / €19.99. It’s the ultra-portable version of our biggest adventure, optimized to run at 60 fps even with stereoscopic 3D turned on! It runs like a charm even on the earliest iterations of the hardware, and many of us still enjoy this machine to the max.
We expect great things from the 3DS in 2018, and we firmly believe Nintendo will keep supporting the system for a good while yet. I and the team hope you will enjoy SWD2 when it surfaces next week!

SteamWorld Dig 2 is out this Thursday on Nintendo Switch for $19.99/€19.99, with the PC versions launching just one day later on Steam, GOG, Humble Store and more. To celebrate this, we now give you the official launch trailer!
The video showcases some of the different worlds, new upgrades, new enemies, thrilling boss fights, the first-ever look at the UI and much more! It’s also got custom music by the game’s main composer El Huervo (of Hotline Miami fame).
PlayStation fans won’t have to wait long for their fill, as the game hits Sony’s digital stores in America on September 26 and in Europe the day after. Oh, and it’s cross-buy on PlayStation 4 and Vita. We’re incredibly excited to launch our best game yet on so many platforms within one week of each other!
To recap, SWD2 hits…
– Nintendo Switch: September 21
– PC/Mac/Linux: September 22
– PS4/Vita: September 26/27

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).

On April 28 we introduce The Outsider – Image & Form’s first add-on content (DLC) for the studio’s acclaimed strategy shooter SteamWorld Heist on Nintendo 3DS. The Outsider will cost $4.99/€4.99/£4.49 or the equivalent.
How to play
The Outsider is not a conventional add-on. The new plot, missions, enemies, end boss, guns, utilities and dozens of new hats – of course! – blend seamlessly into the game. This means that, aside from starting afresh, you can pick up earlier save profiles, discover the history of Fen, and add the character to your roster pretty much immediately. And what an addition it is!
“Fen’s got some really fearsome firepower and clever upgrade mechanics that turn kills into own health and massive damage to others,” says Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson. “Busting up metal has never been this rewarding!”
Five new languages + Free Update
Outside of The Outsider, April 28 also sees a substantial free update to SteamWorld Heist itself. Players that prefer to have their steam-driven robots speak in French, German, Italian, Spanish or Russian will be happy, and due to popular demand we’ve also expanded the inventory a bit – now you have more empty slots from the outset, and getting new slots will be less taxing on your water reserves. And there’s more utilities. Oh, and even more weird hats.
Installing the free update makes The Outsider available from within SteamWorld Heist.

So far SteamWorld Heist is an even bigger success than SteamWorld Dig. Not just in terms of sales: Reviews and community feedback are through the roof!
At the time of writing SteamWorld Heist is tied with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate for the highest rated 3DS game of 2015 (not counting remakes), according to Metacritic. We have no sales figures to share today, but rest assured we’re very pleased with the numbers.
Before our inflated egos won’t fit through the front door anymore we’d like to thank you. Without your support this wouldn’t have been possible!
The first SteamWorld Heist update (containing the French, Italian, German, Spanish and Russian translations) was originally planned for release on Nintendo 3DS this month. Time constraints have pushed this forward a bit.
We’re working hard to ensure it’s downright excellent and expect to have the update out before you know it. To make up for the delay we’re throwing in new surprises and lots of polish. Stay tuned!
