SteamWorld Dig 2 Now Available At Retail

If you missed out on last year’s amazing SteamWorld Dig 2, you can now pick it up at your local retailer. The game has made the jump from the eShop and onto a cartridge! This was one of our favorite Switch games last year and shouldn’t be missed. Heck, it might be worth double-dipping for the gorgeous art alone! Check out our review here.



Video game publisher Rising Star Games, in collaboration with critically-acclaimed developer Image & Form, announced today that the smash-hit title SteamWorld Dig 2 is available now for the Nintendo Switch™ System and PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system as a physical retail release. The boxed editions include an exclusive double-sided poster featuring iconic artwork from the game, along with a reversible inlay with never-before-seen artwork.

Lavished with praise and accolades since its digital release in late 2017, SteamWorld Dig 2 has proven a runaway smash-hit with consumers, fans and critics alike.

SteamWorld Dig 2 takes players on a platform mining adventure forged in Metroidvania flames. When an old trading town is struck by mysterious earthquakes, it’s up to a lone steambot and her unlikely companion to uncover what trembling terrors lie beneath.

SteamWorld Dig 2 key features:

  • Dig your way underground and explore vivid worlds riddled with treasure, secrets and traps.
  • Combat dangerous enemies at every turn of the underworld’s twisted paths, including shadowy creatures and the haunted remains of an ancient electrical threat.
  • Upgrade your gear to forge deeper into the earth and take on bigger challenges.
  • Swing across large chasms with your Hookshot and fly through caves with the jet engine!
  • And finally, learn the truth about your long lost friend…

SteamWorld Dig 2 for Nintendo Switch™ System and PlayStation®4 System, developed by Image & Form and published at physical retail by Rising Star Games, is now available at selected retailers across North America and beyond.
