Image & Form is still nailing down the specifics for SteamWorld Dig’s cross-buy promotion. Those who have purchased the game on 3DS may be entitled to a discount for the Wii U version, which launches at the end of this month.

Image & Form wrote on Twitter:


Update: European date is now confirmed and SteamWorld Dig should be out in North America around the same time:

The European Wii U eShop is currently listing SteamWorld Dig for release on August 28. We’re trying to follow up with Image & Form to verify that the date is accurate.

August 28 would definitely make sense. We just heard a short while ago that Image & Form is targeting SteamWorld Dig’s Wii U launch for late August.

SteamWorld Dig’s Wii U version is launching towards the end of this month, developer Image & Form confirmed on Twitter. This is actually earlier than the studio planned.

Thanks to Adrian Brown for the tip.


The 3DS version of SteamWorld Dig does not include achievements. But for the PlayStation and Steam release, developer Image & Form added them in.

One fan asked the studio if achievements is something that would be possible for the upcoming Wii U version. Image & Form’s Julius Guldbog responded by stating that he can’t promise anything but added, “I’ll see what we can do”.
