Image & Form exploring physical release for SteamWorld Dig 2, open to bringing previous games to Switch

Posted on March 16, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

As of now, SteamWorld Dig 2 will be a digital title on Switch. The game could eventually go the physical route as well.

In a Reddit AMA, Image & Form community manager Julius Guldbog said the team is “looking into” the possibility of SteamWorld Dig 2 seeing a retail release. Guldbog added in a separate comment:

“No word on a physical release yet. We’re in the talks with distributors, but have nothing to announce at this moment. BUT SteamWorld Collection did REALLY well for us, so physical makes a lot of sense.”

Guldbog was also asked throughout the AMA about bringing past SteamWorld entries to Switch. Image & Form would “love” to make that happen, but SteamWorld Dig 2 is the focus for the time being.

      Same here. As much as I love physical carts, the original Steamworld only took 5 or so hours to beat. Unless SW2 is considerably longer, it doesn’t seem to make much sense.
