If you're a fan of SteamWorld Dig, you'll no doubt be beyond pleased to hear that more games set in the SteamWorld universe are very much on the way.

The developer behind the series, Image & Form, has today shared a message on its social media accounts to assure fans that their favourite post-apocalyptic steampunk world is safe and sound. The news was actually confirmed by the team several months ago in a YouTube video (see down below), but this casts asides any doubts very nicely indeed.

With the likes of SteamWorld Heist and SteamWorld Dig 2 arriving on Switch, we'd naturally hope to see any future instalments appear on Nintendo's console. Thanks to the success the previous games have seen on Nintendo platforms in the past, we'd be willing to bet our houses (well, maybe) that upcoming games will release on Switch, too.

If you haven't yet experienced a game from the franchise, we certainly recommend that you do. We awarded SteamWorld Dig 2's Switch release with an 'excellent' 9/10 in our review, saying that it was "another confident effort from Image & Form" and "a worthy successor" to the original, as well as throwing a nice handful of praise at its sound, art, and performance.

Are you looking forward to more SteamWorld games? Have you been tempted to play one but not yet found the time? Let us know below. Oh, and here's that video we promised. Enjoy!
