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.

    So is this a touch-screen oriented game? Good. This will show the gamepad’s value then.

    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?

      can’t deny a guy with that kind of commitment for too long

        Thanks, hopefully I get back in touch with him soon, since my sample is already done.

          I hope no one is trying to purposely throw a monkey ranch in your plans. *best of luck

    i hope it has some extras at least, comparing it to the 3ds version

    Still never got it for 3DS. I guess I’ll just get it on Wii U instead.
