Developer Image and Form Games announced in February of this year that the direct sequel, Steamworld Dig 2, would be released for the Nintendo Switch in the summer, and that a PC version was on the way too. A release date hasn't been announced (in fact, it's been pushed back slightly) but today the game appeared on Steam, and the studio said that the delay between the Nintendo and PC releases won't be nearly as long this time around.The first Steamworld Dig tells the tale of Rusty, a steam-powered robot who inherits a Wild West-style mine from his uncle.
