Image & Form has released a new trailer in celebration of SteamWorld Dig 2’s release. The mining game will launch on the Nintendo Switch this Thursday, September 21, with the PC release September 22. Finally, PlayStation 4 and Vita owners will be able to grab SteamWorld Dig 2 on September 26, and cross-play will be available.

Check out the trailer:

Here is more about how SteamWorld Dig 2 changes things up from the original game:

1. A New Protagonist
Rusty has disappeared. In SWD2, Dorothy McCrank is here to fill his boots. She’s gone from a sidelined sidekick in the original SteamWorld Dig to an awesome hero able to save the day. It’s up to Dorothy (and you) to accept the challenge and embark on an epic underground adventure.

2. New Companions
You won’t dig into adventure on your own this time. The game is host to a wonderful cast of characters with their own personalities, quirks and purposes. Some will help you more actively on your journey, while some will do their best to get in your way. We’ll let you figure out exactly who these people are on your own…

3. New Upgrades
The upgrades played a big role in the original Dig. This time they’re bigger, better and and will take you to places you’ve never been before. Besides carving your way through the earth with your trusty pickaxe, you will literally fly through caves with the Jet Engine and grab faraway treasure with the new Hookshot. Expect even more awesome gear as the game progresses.

SteamWorld Dig 2 will release September 26 on the PlayStation 4 and Vita.
