Digger Dan & Kaboom was a rather neat DSiWare title, and developer Four Horses has been working to bring it to the 3DS eShop in an improved form with Digger Dan DX. Having previously cited a Summer release before stating that it was heading for an earlier arrival, the studio has now confirmed launch details.

It's arriving on 19th May in Europe and North America - for the first two weeks it'll be a hard-to-resist $0.99 / €0.99 / £0.89, before increasing to $1.99 / €1.99 / £1.79. For those wondering about its improvements over the original, the following are promised:

  • All 100 levels from the original game, re-ordered to introduce new features more gradually.
  • 4 themed areas with all new graphics
  • Stereoscopic 3D layers
  • Improved audio
  • 60fps smooth action
  • 4 save slots

A video has been released to show it in action. It'll be interesting to see whether this one lives up to the same level of gameplay enjoyment as its predecessor, and at those budget prices we suspect plenty will consider taking a punt on it.
