Super Rare Games is celebrating the SteamWorld series’ 10th anniversary. They are bringing SteamWorld Dig and SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition to the Switch in limited physical editions. Only 5,000 physical copies of SteamWorld Dig will be available globally, each of which includes SteamWorld Dig 2 on the cartridge! Meanwhile, the physical release of SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition will have 6,000 copies available worldwide. Pre-orders for both physical editions will open on July 9th at 10am PT/1pm ET (6:00pm BST). They will cost you about $31 each, or about $62 if you get the double pack. These pre-orders will be exclusively at SuperRareGames.com.

 

The games will ship soon after the pre-orders go live, which means late July according to the website. Each of these packages includes a full-color manual, interior artwork, an exclusive sticker, and three trading cards (randomly selected from a five card set).

SteamWorld Dig is an acclaimed indie platform mining adventure game. Players control a mining steambot named Rusty, who has arrived at an old mining town in need of his help.  He’ll need to dig deep into the Earth to find riches, while an ancient threat lurks somewhere in the depths below. The physical edition of the game on Nintendo Switch also includes SteamWorld Dig 2 on the cartridge!

 

SteamWorld: Heist takes place a few centuries after the events of SteamWorld Dig 2. A crew of steambots must get aboard and shoot their way through enemy spaceships. Players take on the role of captain, as they loot the spaceships and upgrade the unique abilities, weapons, and even stylish hats of their crew. SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition‘s physical release on Switch comes with previously released DLC, as well. One playthrough of its procedurally generated levels takes around 15-20 hours, not including the New Game+ mode.

You can find out more about the SteamWorld series of games at the official website. Below are links to both physical editions coming to the Switch, and the double pack:

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
