At last, the game comes to the one modern platform it wasn’t available on so far.
SteamWorld Dig 2, the excellent metroidvania adventure game that launched on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Nintendo 3DS, and PC last year, is available to purchase now on Xbox One. For some reason, this excellent game, which is full to the brim with great mechanics, fantastic level design, and a whole lot of content, was not available on Microsoft’s console until now, though thankfully that seems to have been rectified.
It seems like this is just the game straight up, with no platform specific or exclusive content, which is often characteristic of indie games that come to consoles later. It also costs $19.99, which is the exact same price that the game is everywhere else.
Still, as mentioned, this is an amazing game, and I think Xbox players who have any interest in the Metroidvania style of game design need to look into this, since it’s one of the best games of its ilk we have seen in years.
