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…
