The Nintendo Switch Nindies Showcase is underway and for anyone who was wondering what SteamWorld title Image & Form have been working on, it is of course SteamWorld Dig 2!
Rusty may not be the Hero in this instalment, but it does seem as though he is the one our chosen protagonist is looking for and going by the footage shown today, in quite a few ways it is like the SteamWorld Dig we know and love, as it is yet another platform mining game and has a bit of past meets future, but it is a full on sequel and it looks incredible!
SteamWorld Dig 2 releases in the eShop on Switch, this Summer.
Here is an official announcement from Image & Form:
Grab your pickaxe and dig into this 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…
Adventure awaits this summer when SteamWorld Dig 2 debuts on Nintendo Switch. We can’t wait to show our fans how we’ve incorporated the Nintendo Switch system’s unique technologies, like the Joy-Con and HD Rumble.
