Unless you’ve been living under a rock, SteamWorld Dig 2 is out now on Switch and Steam, with its PlayStation 4 and Vita debut still set to take place next week and the reaction has been phenomenal.
SteamWorld Dig 2 isn’t just good, it’s an absolute hit and it’s getting a lot of love, especially on Switch, so it’s only natural that once again Image & Form would be questioned once again on the possibility of porting some of their previous games to the Nintendo Switch. So because it was only a matter of time before it happened, we figured why not letting it be us? So here’s what Image & Form’s Brjánn Sigurgeirsson was able to say when he had a spare five minutes (it is launch week after all.):
“We are always looking at the possibilities to bring more games to Nintendo Switch. We love the Switch, it’s a great success and a great gaming platform. However, we’re constantly balancing our resources, there’s really no extra fat on the Image & Form body. That means we’re always dealing with capacity issues.”
As great as it would have been for Image & Form to have turned around and be like “yeah we got another game on the way,” what does it really matter? Whether they do or don’t have another game on the way, the fact of the matter is they have poured their heart and soul into SteamWorld Dig 2 and it shows, so even if another game isn’t revealed at any point this year, how about we all enjoy the game that we’ve got, go hands on with Super Mario Odyssey and see what happens later on down the line.
Also let’s not forget that Image & Form are one of the biggest teases in the gaming scene and we all love them for it. They’re also a great developer, so there will be another game down the line eventually as they’re great supporters of Nintendo, but right now Dig 2 is the only SteamWorld game fans need on Switch and if it’s good enough for them, it’s good enough for them.
