SteamWorld Dig 2 Launches for PC, PS4, and Switch “Late Summer/Early Fall 2017”

Image & Form Games have announced the release window for SteamWorld Dig 2.

The game is set for a release sometime in “late summer / early fall” of this year. Alongside the previously announced Nintendo Switch version are the newly confirmed PC, Mac, Linux, and PlayStation 4 versions.

Image & Form Games note the game is “pretty much finished,” however they need a few more months to polish it up for a final release.

Here’s a brief rundown on the game, via its Steam page:

Grab your pickaxe and dig into the sequel to the award-winning SteamWorld Dig! A platform mining adventure forged in Metroidvania flames.

In search of her lost friend, a lone steambot and her unlikely companion must dig deep, gain riches and explore an underworld riddled with danger. But time is running short…

In case you missed this as well, you can find my review for the original SteamWorld Dig here (I absolutely loved it and highly recommend it). You can also find our review for the tactical spinoff SteamWorld Heist, here(we highly recommend it).

    Only tried heist, but loved it. Since the universe kinda ties together, really tempted.

    Thank christ this isn’t an actual Switch exclusive like they were making it out to be a few months ago. I have no interest in handheld gaming, and even less interest in buying that trash console.

    Sweet. As much as I liked Steamworld Heist, and I did, I liked Steamworld Dig more.

    I thought these games were stupid. Boy was I wrong.

    Seems like some kind of ploy to get Nintendo fans invested, happened with Stealth Inc.2 it was announced as Wii U exclusive with no real reasoning for it other than being asshurt about competition on platforms until it did come out on those platforms months later and became a PS Plus offering a bit after that.
