Brjann Sigurgeirsson spills the beans to us

SteamWorld Dig, since its release on the 3DS eShop, has gradually matched critical acclaim with greater awareness and success on the platform. It's certainly a title that's captured the imagination of many regular 3DS eShop regulars, picking up plenty of positive word of mouth.

We've spoken in detail to Image & Form's Brjann Sigurgeirsson during this year's Eurogamer Expo, and in a video interview to be published in the coming week he shares his views on the eShop market, his perspective of other platforms such as iOS and the genesis and development of the game itself. What's been evident is the overwhelmingly positive reaction to game has garnered from 3DS owners, with Sigurgeirsson often stopped on the show floor by appreciative fans. In good news for those that have enjoyed SteamWorld Dig, the developer has confirmed to us that work is underway on a new 3DS eShop instalment in the SteamWorld Dig series.

We've come quite far developing the next game in the SteamWorld series, and we're waiting for the right moment to announce more details.

Once we have more information to share we'll be sure to keep you all updated on Nintendo Life.

As you can see, further details are under wraps for now, yet it's certainly a boost for the platform to know that it's in the works. Keep your eyes peeled for the full interview on Nintendo Life in the coming week, but in the meantime let us know what you'd like to see in the next SteamWorld title.
