SteamWorld Headhunter put on hold

As part of its latest financial results, Thunderful CEO Martin Walfisz commented on the sales of SteamWorld Build. While we don’t have specific data, SteamWorld Build “fell slightly short of expectations”.

Switch was actually referenced specifically here. Walfisz said “the genre of this game has not really appealed to our most dedicated target audience and it has not been well-suited to the Switch console, which has traditionally been a key platform for SteamWorld games.”

SteamWorld Headhunter

Thunderful has announced SteamWorld Headhunter, the latest addition to the SteamWorld franchise that has long had a presence on Nintendo platforms.

The new title is “a stylized and colorful, third-person co-op action adventure with a head-popping twist” that directly follows the events of SteamWorld Dig 2. It’ll still feature “the style and charm” the series is known for, but is now entering the 3D space.

To announce the new title, Thunderful issued a debut teaser trailer for SteamWorld Headhunter. Take a look at today’s video below.
