SteamWorld Dig 2
A few months ago, Image & Form confirmed that SteamWorld Dig 2 would also be released on Nintendo 3DS, the platform where the SteamWorld series truly got started with SteamWorld Dig. And today, they announced that this version would be available from February 22nd in Europe and North America. It will cost $19.99 / 19.99€.
This version of the game is highly optimised, to point where it can run at full 60fps even when 3D is activated… and all Nintendo 3DS models, not just the Nintendo 3DS XL / 2DS XL family of systems!
