by Oliver BrandtDecember 12, 2017

When SteamWorld Dig 2 released earlier this year, we thought we were just about done with SteamWorld games on the Switch for the year. We were wrong.

Image & Form have announced via twitter that SteamWorld Heist: Ultimate Edition will be heading to Switch on the 28th of December. The Ultimate Edition will feature all previously released DLC, and boasts optional touch screen controls, for a little extra precision should you need it.

SteamWorld Heist is a very good game — we liked it, both on Wii U and 3DS — and fans will no doubt be happy to hear it’s making the jump to Switch. You can read the full description below, or scroll past it to watch the announcement trailer.
