Posted by Damien McFerran

Coming tomorrow in those regions, new trailer also released

European and Australian 3DS owners will get to play SteamWorld Dig a full 24 hours before their North American counterparts, as the game will go live on the eShop tomorrow at 17:00 CET in those regions.

We've been sent this piece of juicy info by developer Image & Form International, but it couldn't divulge the reasons for the "anti-delay".

To mark the launch of the game, the company has also released a new trailer, which you can view below.

ok that trailer looked awesome! I don't know why I was expecting something totally different. I'm going to pick this up as soon as I can it just looks great

Why? Please, tell me why.
As if my backloggery wasn't already crammed with awesome games. How the hell will I find the time to play everything?

Hurry up with that review Nintendolife, it looks my kind of game but I won't bite unless you guys tell me it's good!

I know, I just picked up Fire Emblem and SMT IV yesterday. Add in Project X Zone and Luigi's Mansion 2 and I still don't have enough time left in the rest of the year. Then the WII U games coming out...

€9,- is way too much for an impulse download. It looks good, but I'll wait for a price drop.

Anyone know what the US pricing is for this? Looks interesting but my wallet is quite empty from Shin Megami Tensei IV, Project X Zone, Adventure Time, Pikmin 3 & Cloudberry Kingdom!!!!! LOL

The reailer lied a bit: "a first of its kind game" isnt true at all. There was an Xbox 360 Indie title whos name escapes me sadly, but it pretty much was a carbon copy of the digging part. 2D view, platform mechanics, could dig in 8 directions, for the gold (and jewels) collected each trip you could buy upgrades and equipment to go even further and become even richer.
It lacked the combat and RPG elements, but these arent new by a long shot.
So, its not as unique as it wants to be, but interesting nonetheless.
Its on my radar, but i have SO many titles on hold and so few time to play them, i dont see myself buying it first day...

Seems like a cross between Dig Dug and Mighty Switch Force, with some Metroid-esque and Spelunky inspiration. Looks good though.

this game looks good! will it come to the US too?
I just got Bike Rider DX, and those eShop platformers are just awesome.

This reminds me of Miner Dig Deep, an Xbox indie title I played a bunch when I still owned my 360. I'll pick this up if it reviews well.

Wow, excellent trailer. Going to wait for a review, but If the game turns out good i will definitely be picking this one up.
Music used in trailer definitely has a Ennio Morricone feel, so fits well with the Western theme. That enemy near the end of the trailer reminds of HAL 9000 or the computer from Demon Seed.

Pocketgamer gave it a Platinum Editors Award which mnakes it an instant buy for me, I find thier reviews no-nonsense and spot on. Ifr they say buy, I buy. and never have regretted it.
