SteamWorld Dig Out On Wii U Next Week

By   /   Aug 19, 2014

Developer ImageForm announced that their title SteamWorld Dig will be out on Nintendo Wii U on August 28, 2014 in Europe. It will be available for €8.99, which is comparable to its other releases.

For the Wii U version of the game, the developer touts 60 frames per second and 1080p HD visuals.  Effects like animated character panels and bloom will also be fitted in.

Moreover, the game’s presentation will do away with the interface on the screen. It will make use of the Wii U GamePad for any of those elements, such as a map.

SteamWorld Dig features the console’s Off-TV Play function that allows you to play on the tablet controller. There’s also Wii U Pro Controller support.

As with its previous versions, SteamWorld Dig may have some specific Easter eggs for Wii U. For its Steam release, the game added Half-Life 3 referencing in one of its stages, for instance.

SteamWorld Dig is a platform puzzle game of sorts, put in a sharp 2D cartoon setting. Most stages require the little robot, Rusty, to dig through terrain down into one of the many rooms the game holds.

Rooms have their own puzzle design to figure out, which switches from just foraging for materials and killing enemies. Playing the game lasts about six hours, but it’s six hours well spent.

SteamWorld Dig is now available for Nintendo 3DS, PC, PS Vita and Playstation 4. The only one missing is Xbox now. Given the developer’s track record, that may still be coming at some point.
