SteamWorld Dig 2 FAQ

When exactly will SteamWorld Dig 2 be released?

You can expect to play SteamWorld Dig 2 sometime this summer.

For which platforms will it be released?

SteamWorld Dig 2 will debut on Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for more platform announcements in the near future. We’re exploring the possibilities of a multiplatform release on day one. Stay tuned!

What was “SteamWorld Quest” and “SteamWorld Project 2017?”?

There’s a really fun connection between SteamWorld Quest/SteamWorld Project 2017 and SteamWorld Dig 2. Get the full story behind it in the latest Engine Room episode on YouTube.

Will the sequel be longer than the original SteamWorld Dig?

Sure thing! It’s a meaty exploration platformer with a wide variety of upgrades and worlds to discover. Expect a vivid underworld in which you’ll encounter all kinds of enemies, treasures and traps. We’ll reveal more details in the coming months!

Where’s Rusty?!

We have not forgotten about Rusty. He’s very important to the events unfolding in SteamWorld Dig 2. We don’t want to spoil anything this early, but rest assured knowing he’s present in the game.


Day 1 if/when it launches on PS4.

Should've made Heist 2 instead.

No.

Yup.

Enjoyed what I played of Heist, but I preferred Dig's more relaxed atmosphere. No doubt there'll be a Heist 2 somewhere along the line, though I wouldn't mind seeing something totally new again.

I played the first one a bit on PS4 and didn't like it all that much, but the trailer makes this look more interesting. Maybe I was just playing the last one wrong.

Precisely this... but hope they do a Vita version. If not, this would definitely help sell Switch to me.

I think I preferred Heist, but they're both amazing, so I'm still delighted.

(Those graphics, by the way :D :wub: )

These boys whore their games out to every platform going. It'll almost certainly be on PS4 and quite possibly on PS+. Vita, they've always supported it but I guess that might be on the slide. :cry:

Yeah, that was my concern - there were some examples of pretty big slowdown on Heist on the Vita (mainly during screen-packed explosions; didn't affect the gameplay) so I wonder if it'll reach the point where supporting Vita might force too many visual/gameplay compromises.

Those shots above are a clear step forward in terms of visuals, while retaining the art style, so will be interesting to see what happens. Either way, there's no way I'm not playing this, so if it's PS4/Switch, so be it.

Nice. I'll be getting the Switch version, day one. I've given up on them releasing Heist on XB1.

Hadn't been following this at all but it looks excellent. Will be picking this up for sure.

Day 1/soon after (Ys 8 keeping me occupied) confirmed. Won't be waiting for it to hit a sale.

Awesome. 100% getting this.

Might save it until I get a switch though.

It does seem to be a great game, Cyburn, and Nintendo Life do really like it.. but, at the risk of being a pedant, they gave it a 09 rather than a 10.

Disappointed It's not coming to 3DS. Loved having both Dig and Heist available on the handheld.

Lovely to see good reviews. Image & Form are quickly becoming one of my favourite developers, there was a rumour some months back that they trademarked Steamworld Quest, and I would like to see them try theirbhanf at an RPG.

Gonna buy this on switch. Any idea on price, and what time do games go live on switch store? Hopefully I can download before leaving for work tomorrow. I read it’s very small, only around 200mb.

The eShop is updated at 14:00 (UK) each Thursday, Yoshimi. Big (“AAA”) games are released at 00:00 (UK) on the day of launch.

Might play through the last one again, and possibly Heist, to warm up for this.

I really love Image and Form.
