Steamworld Dig Announced For Wii U
SteamWorld Dig For Wii U. Is It Really True? Yes, it’s true. Image & Form’s SteamWorld Dig is coming to Wii U! Ever since we first launched our latest game SteamWorld Dig on Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo fans have been asking us for a next-gen Wii U version of the game. And now that we are Wii U developers we can finally answer the players’ prayers!
For those of you who know the history of Image & Form, it should come as no surprise that Nintendo and Image & Form go way back. We actually had our first ever console release in 2010 on the Nintendo DSi with SteamWorld Tower Defense (the first game in the SteamWorld series). The game was awarded an 8/10 from IGN.com. That made us very happy, to say the least. Our success on Nintendo systems continued last year when we released SteamWorld Dig on Nintendo 3DS™.
We’re aiming to release SteamWorld Dig on Wii U in the fall of 2014, and we’re overjoyed by the fact that we’ll soon have our first Nintendo home console release. It’s a lifelong dream come true, since most of us at Image & Form are massive Nintendo fans. We wrote a blog on that, in which we also explain why we think Wii U is a perfect platform for SteamWorld Dig.
