SteamWorld Dig 2: Release Date & Price

Howdy, partners!

SteamWorld Dig 2 hits Nintendo Switch on September 21 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.

Watch and enjoy:

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 21. 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).

A wonderful cast of characters

What about Steam and PS4?

Not a proud owner of Nintendo Switch? Well, you’re in luck! Only a few days later you’ll be able to download and play SWD2 on Steam and PlayStation 4. Expect more details (and a few surprises) very soon!

Play SWD2 at PAX West

SteamWorld Dig 2 is playable at PAX West this week. Brjánn is already in Seattle and ready to mingle with happy SteamWorld fans. We’d love to hear from you on social media if you stop by our booth (the Nintendo one).

    I’m so excited! I realize it might not be viable, but is there any possibility of a physical release of any kind?

    • Definitely more than a possibility! Stay tuned 😀
