Here's a world exclusive look at SteamWorld Dig on the Wii U GamePad 😀 Launches in EU, NA, AU and NZ on Aug 28 pic.twitter.com/sYcUw0VHVi — Image & Form (@ImageForm) August 13, 2014 One of the best Nintendo eShop titles for the Nintendo 3DS last year was SteamWorld Dig, a puzzling platformer with plenty of mining, kooky robots, and a huge pit to get to the bottom of in order to discover what happened to your uncle. The game is an amazing way to spend a few hours, so naturally I was super excited when developer Image & Form finally announced a Wii U version of the game. Today Image & Form tweeted out a quick photo that shows the game running on the Wii U GamePad, showcasing the town above the huge mine your uncle leaves you after he’s died, as well as what your inventory looks like. The gameplay for the game is conducive to using the TouchPad, so the team will probably add a few extra features for those who want to play it on the GamePad exclusively. Either way, it’s nice to see the game coming along so well. It’ll be available later this month on August 28. local_offer Nintendo steamworld dig wii u stars Further Reading Why Nintendo discontinued the NES Classic Nintendo will not have an E3 press conference Nintendo profits are up 520% Breath of the Wild sells 3.8 million units Is Nintendo shafting Axiom Verge because of Dan Adelman? Nintendo doesn't need 3rd parties, says Stardock CEO darkcreap So is this a touch-screen oriented game? Good. This will show the gamepad’s value then. Zach Hey, Ashley or someone else on the Wii U Daily staff. I was in contact with Rob Jackson awhile back. Could someone help me get back in contact with him again? Darius can’t deny a guy with that kind of commitment for too long Zach Thanks, hopefully I get back in touch with him soon, since my sample is already done. Darius I hope no one is trying to purposely throw a monkey ranch in your plans. *best of luck Zach Same here, hopefully I get back in contact with someone soon.
