We’re back where it all began.
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.*DRUMROLL*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!
