Image & Form announce SteamWorld Dig 2 for Nintendo 3DS, while the Switch and Playstation 4 are getting boxed editions.

Image & Form have confirmed that their delightful dig ’em up sequel, SteamWorld Dig 2, will be released for Nintendo 3DS via the Nintendo eShop on February 22. It will be priced at $19.99 / €19.99.

The 3DS iteration comes as a little bit of a surprise considering the game’s scope and size. Nonetheless, with over 70 millions 3DS consoles in the wild it’s undoubtedly a worthwhile venture, and brings the series back to console where it started.

Nothing will be lost from SteamWorld Dig 2 in its move to the 3DS. In a statement on the Image & Form website, community manager Julius Guldbog said:

“It’s an ultra-portable version of our biggest adventure that’s been optimized to run at 60fps even with the stereoscopic 3D effect turned on. It runs like a charm even on the earliest iterations of the hardware.”

Last week, the studio also announced that Rising Star Games is publishing a physical edition of SteamWorld Dig 2 for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. The boxed version will include a double-sided poster featuring artwork from the game, a reversible sleeve with new cover art, and some additional, as yet unannounced, goodies.
