SteamWorld Dig 2

SteamWorld Dig 2 could be getting a physical release soon. The game was rated by the USK last month, and the new classification was just added this week.

Rising Star Games is listed as SteamWorld Dig’s 2’s publisher. That tells us that a physical release is likely in the cards. A little over a year ago, Rising Star brought the SteamWorld Collection to Wii U at retail. Image & Form has also previously said that SteamWorld Dig 2 could be offered physically.

During the German program Game Two, new information was shared about the success of two prominent indie games on Switch. Those are SteamWorld Dig 2 and Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap.

Image & Form’s Brjann Sigurgeirsson didn’t share any specific data for SteamWorld Dig 2. However, he did say that the studio had its biggest launch on Switch. The Switch version sold nearly ten times the amount as the Steam version.

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap is another game that has done very well on Switch. According to Lizardcube’s Omar Cornut, 100,000 copies have been sold on Nintendo’s console. Moreover, Switch sales have surpassed the total from all other platforms.

Kotaku caught up with Image & Form CEO Brjann Siegurgeirsson for a look back on the original SteamWorld Dig as well as its sequel. While speaking with the site, Siegurgeirsson revealed that the first game has sold over one million copies collectively.

Image & Form indicated last week that SteamWorld Dig 2 was off to a fast start on Switch after only having been available for a couple of days. Today, the company shared more on the game’s strong debut.

Image & Form says that SteamWorld Dig 2 is the biggest launch in SteamWorld history. It has sold faster than any other game the team has made previously. Specifically on Switch, SteamWorld Dig 2 is “topping the charts in as good as every country.”

What’s most encouraging of all is that Image & Form has “already earned back most of the game’s total development budget.” That bodes well for the studio going forward.

SteamWorld Dig 2 has only been out for a few days, so it’s tough to make too much out of the game’s sales thus far. But with that said, it seems Image & Form is very happy with its performance thus far.

When one fan asked about SteamWorld Dig 2’s sales on Twitter, the developer responded:


This is definitely encouraging to hear. Hopefully SteamWorld Dig 2 continues to sell in the weeks and months to come.
