Why Wii U Is A Perfect Platform For SteamWorld Dig

The cat’s outta the bag: SteamWorld Dig is coming to Wii U. That’s right! No kidding. No need to pinch yourself. Pinky swear. We listen to each and every one of you, and the number one request we’ve gotten by far is to let you next-gen Nintendo console gamers get some of our dirt-diggin’ steampunk cowbot action adventure game. Frankly, we’ve always wanted to. And now that we’re Wii U developers (maybe you saw our teaser last week?) we can finally make it happen!

We think Wii U is perfect for SteamWorld Dig for two reasons:

  1. You guys have asked for it.
  2. We’re massive Nintendo fans.

We’re aiming for a fall 2014 release and are overjoyed by the fact that we’ll soon have our very first release on a Nintendo home console! It may relate to the fact that most of us at Image & Form have been major Nintendo fans since childhood. And judging from all the Nintendo stuff around our office you’d think we’re at the Nintendo HQ in Kyoto!

Wii U is a powerhouse, which is extremely cool. The Wii U GamePad and Miiverse are fun to explore but we’ve yet to decide on how we’ll utilize them. Anyway we’re certain that SteamWorld Dig is perfect for Wii U. We’ll share more details with you, such as release date, price and other cool stuff, in the coming months.

Please, be excited!

We showed you ours, now it’s time for you to show us your Nintendo stuff! Games, toys, figurines, magazines, consoles… anything! Why not snap a pic and share it with us in the comments? 😀
