SteamWorld Dig 2 Lands on Nintendo 3DS Next Week!

Howdy, everyone!

In the last six months, Image & Form has been busier than ever. SteamWorld Dig 2 launched on multiple platforms last September and was followed by a great success (thanks for your support!). Just recently we brought both the original Dig and the ultimate edition of SteamWorld Heist to Nintendo Switch. But one platform has been missing during the entirety of that period. You could say it’s the one where things really took off for us…


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 an ultra-portable version of our biggest adventure that’s been optimized to run at 60fps even with the stereoscopic 3D effect turned on. It runs like a charm even on the earliest iterations of the hardware.

Thanks for being patient with us during the development period. We expect great things from Nintendo 3DS in 2018 and believe the system is here to stay for the foreseeable future. I and the team hope you will enjoy SWD2 when it lands next week!

What’re your favorite things about Nintendo 3DS?

  • Happy to hear it runs at 60fps/3D even on the original hardware, but will it take advantage of the C-stick and Z-buttons on the New 3DS? The original SWD on Vita had some nice added QoL features due to the extra buttons, and they would be quite welcome on the N3DS for SWD2.

    • Thanks for the love! Not by default but you can map almost any action to any direction of the C-Stick and/or the Z-buttons! :D’

      • That’s even better. Every game should have optional key bindings. Thanks for answering.

    wish I knew sooner, have it for switch already, would love to pay in 3D.

    Glad to hear this port exists! Can’t wait to play it. As always, thank you so much for all the hard work the team pours into the SteamWorld franchise 🙂

    I’m probably going to by a second copy of this game for my 3DS just because I love this game (and you guys) so much. Also, I’ll have every single SteamWorld game (including Tower Defense) on one system!

    This looks crazy good for 3DS. You guys really mastered that little console through the years.
    Quick question, sorry if this has been answered somewhere else: have you guys announced the new year winners of the youtube contest ? Thanks ! 🙂
