In a new post on the PlayStation Blog, Julius Guldbog from Image & Form Games has announced that Steamworld Dig 2 will release for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on September 26. The game will be $19.99 and will be cross-buy on both consoles, according to Guldbog.
Also in the blog post, Julian details some new things to expect from the game, some of which you can find below:
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.
You can find the rest of them over at the PlayStation Blog, and make sure to be on the look out for Steamworld Dig 2 on September 26.
