Normally we’ll come on here spouting all the info, this time however the SteamWorld Dig developer has gone all crazy like and done all that for us! The big news though, is that SteamWorld Dig (Yeah that Indie superstar) is making it’s way to Nintendo’s home console Wii U.

Here’s what they had to say on their official website:

The cat’s outta the bag: SteamWorld Dig is coming to Wii U™. That’s right! No kidding. No need to pinch yourself. Pinky swear. We listen to each and every one of you, and the number one request we’ve gotten by far is to let you next-gen Nintendo console gamers get some of our dirt-diggin’ steampunk cowbot action adventure game. Frankly, we’ve always wanted to. And now that we’re Wii U developers (maybe you saw our teaser last week?) we can finally make it happen!

We think Wii U is perfect for SteamWorld Dig for two reasons:
1.You guys have asked for it.
2.We’re massive Nintendo fans.

We’re aiming for a fall 2014 release and are overjoyed by the fact that we’ll soon have our very first release on a Nintendo home console! It may relate to the fact that most of us at Image & Form have been major Nintendo fans since childhood. And judging from all the Nintendo stuff around our office you’d think we’re at the Nintendo HQ in Kyoto!

Pretty sweet right? This is exactly the sort of thing Nintendo Wii U needs to kick itself into gear, Nintendo are still producing unrivalled first party experiences, third party however… those promises from a few years back aren’t yet broken but they are certainly damaged.

Tweet @IndiestryGaming with what sort of games you reckon could save Wii U, or use #SteamWorld to tell us why this announcement makes you happy!
