SteamWorld Heist is set to launch on December 10 in the Americas, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. The game will first launch on the Nintendo 3DS, and CEO of Image & Form Brjann Sigurgeirsson says “We strongly suspect it will rock everyone’s socks off. (Fortunately, we’re quite sure that our gamers have an abundant supply of socks.)”
The Japanese version, as well as other platform releases, will come at a later date.
Pricing information is as follows:
– The regular price point will be $19.99 / €19.99 / £14.99. Yeah, we know it’s too cheap for that much game, but that’s a whole other discussion. Let the simple comparison below suffice – it’s objective too, since math never lies:
– SteamWorld Dig costs $9.99.
– SteamWorld Heist is 10 times bigger and better than Dig.
– Ergo: you’re getting 5 times the value.
Keeping with the holiday tradition of sales and giving, there will be a launch discount for the “marvellous Nintendo 3DS community.” From launch through December 31, the price will be $16.99 / €16.99 / £11.99.
There will also be an exclusive Nintendo 3DS Home Menu theme available with every purchase of the game. The theme will never again be available. If you miss it, you are just out of luck. We have also been told there will be a launch video coming on December 8th that we are all sure to enjoy!
