Videogame publisher Rising Star Games, in collaboration with critically-acclaimed developer Image & Form, today announced that the smash-hit title SteamWorld Dig 2 is soon to be available for Nintendo Switch™ and PlayStation®4 as a physical retail release. The boxed editions will feature an exclusive double-sided poster featuring iconic artwork from the game along with a reversible inlay with never-before-seen artwork. SteamWorld Dig 2 is currently scheduled for release at selected retailers in the USA, across Europe and beyond in Spring 2018.

“We’re totally humbled by the community’s reaction to SteamWorld Dig 2”, said Brjann Sigurgeirsson, CEO at Image & Form. “This latest SteamWorld adventure is a milestone, and we’re naturally very proud of it. Many fans are now asking for a physical release, so it makes me very happy to be able to partner up with Rising Star Games for a boxed version.

  • Dig your way underground and explore vivid worlds riddled with treasure, secrets and traps

  • Swing across large chasms with your Hookshot and fly through caves with the Jet Engine!
  • And finally, learn the truth about your long lost friend…
