Image & Form

The last SteamWorld game, SteamWorld Quest, launched just over two years ago. Image & Form has been keeping quiet about the series since, but that doesn’t mean there’s more to come – quite far from it actually.

Over on Twitter, Image & Form confirmed that “several new SteamWorld games are in the making”. The company wrote:

It’s been announced that SteamWorld Dig 2 will be featured as the next Nintendo Switch Online Game Trial in Japan. If you’re subscribed to the service, the game can be played entirely free for a week, with all progress transferring to the full version.

Note that SteamWorld Dig 2 can be played for free regardless of region so long as you’re a Nintendo Switch Online member. You’ll just need to download the game from the Japanese eShop.

SteamWorld Dig 2 will be featured as a Game Trial between March 1 and March 7. All SteamWorld games will also be on sale for 30 percent off on the Japanese Switch eShop between March 1 and March 14.


SteamWorld Quest Collector's Edition

Thunderful has opened a new online store, and one of the major items of note is a collector’s edition for SteamWorld Quest. Super Rare Games previously offered a physical version, but this release features goodies like a limited edition original soundtrack.

You can purchase the SteamWorld Quest Collector’s Edition here. Keep in mind that only 500 copies will be available worldwide.

SteamWorld Dig 2

Image & Form has been closely associated with Nintendo thanks to the SteamWorld series. Recently though, the studio unveiled the Xbox and PC-exclusive Gunk. While that game doesn’t appear to be releasing on Switch, the good news is that Image & Form is far from finished with its Nintendo support.

Speaking with Kotaku, Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson teased more SteamWorld games to come. He also indicated that Switch and future Nintendo consoles will be included in the studio’s plans.

Sigurgeirsson’s full words:

SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition was previously confirmed to be getting a physical release on Switch. Super Rare Games made an official announcement today, and also revealing that SteamWorld Dig will have a boxed version as well.

Pre-orders open through Super Rare Games’ website on July 9 at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM in the UK / 7 PM in Europe. SteamWorld Dig will be getting 5,000 total copies while SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition will see a total of 6,000 units. A collector’s double pack will also be available.

Each release includes a full-color manual, interior artwork, an exclusive sticker, and three trading cards randomly selected from a five card set.

Image & Form have revealed that they are developing a new game in the SteamWorld series via a job posting on Twitter. The post claims the team are seeking out two experienced 2D artists located in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The tweet reads;

We’re making a new SteamWorld game and are looking for two experienced 2D artists (Art Director or Technical Artist)! Preferably in Gothenburg, Sweden. Got what it takes? Link your portfolio down below and we’ll reach out to you if we’re interested.
