Steamworld Dig 2 was revealed earlier this year for the Nintendo Switch. It promised a bigger game with more hours of gameplay then the original and a greater sense of exploration, a point which the developers emphasize.
Steamworld Dig 2 has been brought up yet again, this time through a Nintendo Switch Nindie Showcase where a release date of September 21st was confirmed. Image & Form also revealed the games’ pricing, which is higher than the original game but around the same as Steamworld Heist.
The game will cost $19.99 / €19.99 / £14.99, which they justify with the many hours of content including boss battles and the freedom to explore. Image & Form discussing the price decision shared:
WD2 will be available on Nintendo eShop for $19.99 or your region’s equivalent. That’s twice the price of the original Dig. It’s at least ten times as good, so it’s more than a nice deal. Expect somewhere around 10 hours of gameplay and multiple boss battles in a big, sprawling world which you’re free to explore and dig through at your own pace. The game is even longer for those of you itching to find all secrets and unlockables (and there are plenty).
