It’s my absolute pleasure to announce that SteamWorld Dig 2 is slated for a summer 2017 release on Nintendo Switch. Due to popular demand from all of you, we’re (finally) revisiting the mysterious and unresolved setting for SteamWorld Dig.
Check out the reveal trailer:
Here’s the official game description:
“Grab your pickaxe and dig into this sequel to the award-winning SteamWorld Dig! A platform mining adventure forged in Metroidvania flames. In search of her lost friend, a lone steambot and her unlikely companion must dig deep, gain riches and explore an underworld riddled with danger. But time is running short…”
The adventure begins this summer when SteamWorld Dig 2 debuts on Nintendo Switch (with more to follow). We can’t wait to show all of you how we’ve incorporated the Nintendo Switch system’s unique technologies, like the Joy-Con and HD Rumble.
