Image & Form Games have announced the release date of SteamWorld Dig 2 during the Nindies Summer Showcase earlier today. However, at the moment it’s only the Nintendo Switch release date, which is set for September 21. The PlayStation 4 and PC versions are set to release “a few days later”, according to Image & Form.
Here’s a look at the Nindies SteamWorld Dig 2 trailer:
There’s a bit more from Image & Form themselves:
SteamWorld Dig 2 will be available on Nintendo eShop for $19.99 or the equivalent. That’s twice the price of the original Dig. It’s at least ten times as good, so it’s more than a nice deal. 🙂 Expect somewhere around 10 hours of gameplay and multiple boss battles in a big, sprawling world which you’re free to explore and dig through at your own pace. The game is even longer for those of you itching to find all secrets and unlockables (and there are plenty).
Seeing as the original Steamworld Dig only clocks in at about 2-3 hours, Dig 2 is looking to have a lot more content this time around.
If you’re wondering more about what SteamWorld Dig 2 is, here’s a short description:
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…
