After a successful release of Steamworld Dig on both the Nintendo 3DS eShop and Steam, developer Image & Form believes the Wii U would be a great fit for the game. According to Brjann Sigurgeirsson, the team is looking at the possibility of bringing the title to Wii U.

“The Wii U would work very well for the SteamWorld series, so it’s definitely one of the things that we’re looking into – we’re fortunate that we left mobile at the right time and got embraced by Nintendo when it happened.”

The statement comes from a recent interview with Official Nintendo Magazine, where Sigurgeirsson admits that the App Store for iOS is now more of a lottery than it used to be and it’s no longer feasible to develop mobile games. Of course, the team at Image & Form are already hard at work on a successor to Steamworld Dig, after fans begged to see more of the game on social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

If you haven’t played the game either on the Nintendo 3DS or Steam, it’s a charming puzzle platformer that has you exploring the depths of a mine to discover a dark secret. You can check out the trailer for the game below.

    This looks really cool 🙂

    Hopefully more than just a port.

      They need to set the stage for the sequel on the Wii U by having the first game available on that platform.

      Its a solid game, regardless if it turns out to be a port. It’ll probably be a little bit more than that, though.

      I personally love it on my 3DS. Can’t wait for a sequel.

    Look interesting.

    Loved RUSH, EDGE, Toki Tori 2, Knytt Underground and some more eShop downloadable games in Wii U this year. They amazing games. 🙂

    This, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty, Shovel Knight, FAST Racing Neo and many more in 2014 for Wii U’s eShop downloadable games!!!

      I’m currently playing Knytt Underground now, awesome game, reminds me of Super Metroid without the shooting and more exploration.
      Even the credits section has a hidden tunnel!
      The badges are hard to find too, massive!

      Oddworld is my favorite franchise, great artwork, characters and stories.
      The eshop is going from strength to strength and 2014 looks amazing.

      It will be a Happy New Year for Wii U owners!

    Dang making videogames seems like a ton of work. If this game isn’t too expensive I’ll support it cuz I still like 2D side scrollers and it doesn’t look half bad.
