Brjann Sigurgeirsson, CEO of Image & Form Games, has announced that SteamWorld Dig will be making the jump to PlayStation 4 and Vita in March.

The game will cost $9.99 and features cross-buy support. SteamWorld Dig sees you take on the role of Rusty, a mining steambot, who has arrived in an old mining town that needs help. Players must dig down to gain riches and battle the ancient threat that lurks below.

SteamWorld Dig is what we call “a mining platform adventure,”” Sigurgeirsson explained on the PlayStation Blog. “The objective is mining, the controls are those of a platformer, and it’s a story-driven game with a defined beginning and end. It’s been compared to Minecraft and Terraria, but those are sandbox games and not that similar to SteamWorld Dig — which is more of a Metroidvania type of game.

“You dig down, find gems and minerals, get back up to the surface, sell the loot to upgrade your equipment, and go back down again. Both soil and enemies get tougher the further down you go, and also other aspects of the environment.

“Now that SteamWorld Dig is coming to PS4 and PS Vita, we’re so proud we could cry. Having the game on a console is a long-standing dream, and we’re very pleased that console will be the magnificent PS4,” he added. “SteamWorld Dig has already proven itself as a great handheld game, and it feels like the Vita was made for it. The crisp, vibrant graphics almost pop off the screen, and the controls are super solid.”

SteamWorld Dig is currently available on PC and Nintendo 3DS.
