SteamWorld Heist Reconfirmed for Wii U and 3DS

This may not come as a huge surprise to fans of last year’s excellent SteamWorld Dig, but Image & Form recently announced that their new project SteamWorld Heist will be hitting both Nintendo consoles (which includes the PS4?) as well as a slew of other platforms. Here’s more from the dev:

Happy news! We have received the official warm embrace from all major platforms owners, who are all eager to see SteamWorld Heist on their flagship consoles and devices. That means we’ll release Heist on all their current platforms, which logically should mean PC/Mac/Linux, Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PlayStation 4, Vita, Xbox One. The exact order is yet to be decided.

Going multi-platform is an ambitious move for any independent studio, but Image & Form has definitely proven to be worth their salt when it comes to churning out a quality port.

Another interesting tidbit is that the Swedish dev is contemplating whether or not to “set up shop” in Japan in order to appease Nintendo of Japan’s strict self-publishing requirements. Talk about a massive commitment on top of an already massive commitment.

Multiple platforms, multiple languages–heck, I’ll wager that Image & Form probably has multiple games in development too. Does their reach know no bounds?

SteamWorld Heist is slated for Spring 2015.
