'SteamWorld Heist' (ALL) Gets 3DS Price & Date

by Rainier on Dec. 1, 2015 @ 8:11 p.m. PST

SteamWorld Heist is a game about space adventures and survival. Recruit a team of ragtag robots to explore and scavenge the remains of a destroyed world. Board enemy ships and command your crew in a unique variety of turn-based combat.

Taking place some time after SteamWorld Dig, a cataclysmic event has shattered the planet and forced its population into steam-driven spaceships. It’s a robot-eat-robot world out there, and water is desperately hard to come by. Heisting other ships and bases - bad guys fortunately, the lot of them - is their only way to remain in operation.

SteamWorld Heist launches on 3DS in the Americas, Europe, Australia and New Zealand on December 10 at 14:00 UTC and the equivalent, the Japanese version will come later, as will all other platforms.

The regular SteamWorld Dig price point will be $19.99 / €19.99 / £14.99.

Yeah, we know it's too cheap for that much game, but that's a whole other discussion. Let the simple comparison below suffice - it's objective too, since math never lies:

  • SteamWorld Dig costs $9.99.
  • SteamWorld Heist is 10 times bigger and better than Dig.
  • Ergo: you're getting 5 times the value.

However, since it's the holidays, we're also throwing in a launch discount as a Christmas present to the marvelous 3DS community. 

From launch until December 31, the price will be $16.99 / €16.99 / £11.99. We don't expect to discount the game for a very long while after that. Yes, really.
