During yesterday’s Treehouse Live stream on the last day of E3 Image & Form’s Brjann Sigurgeirsson announced that the company’s newest game, Steamworld Heist, will be debuting first on the 3DS. When he was asked why the game would be debuting first on that system he simply said, “”I’m proud to say it’s a matter of loyalty”. Their first game, Steamworld Dig, released first on 3DS and it was hugely successful there.
Heist is set in the same world as its predecessor, but does not feature similar game play. It’s a much different style of game. While no firm release date has been set as of yet they company is hopeful that it will be out on 3DS this Fall with other platforms coming later.
