Prepare for boarding! Image & Form has announced that SteamWorld Heist is “nearing completion,” and will soon be sent to Nintendo’s lot check for final approval.
New Nintendo 3DS screenshots accompany the news, presenting the space bar Gat’s Orbithouse and a level in which Piper and Seabrass have been cornered by Scrapper thugs.
“It’s going really, really well! Thanks for asking,” Image & Form community manager Julius Guldbog shared. “The game is nearing completion and fairly soon we’ll be able to send the game to Nintendo for final approval. The game will launch this year and we can’t wait to show you more of it as launch draws closer…”
He continues, “The last stretch is all about polishing, bug fixing, balancing, proof-reading and tweaking to make the very best game we possibly can. It’s going to be worth the wait. So stay tuned for more news regarding release date, price and other cool details in the near future. We just got a capture kit from Nintendo, so when the game is polished enough we’ll show you lots of direct feed gameplay!”
Their update names Vix Chan and Zilochius Industries as the latest SteamWorld Ambassadors for their entries in the photo challenge, which will see them become the first in the world to play the developer’s robotic strategy title.
SteamWorld Heist will launch on Nintendo 3DS in 2015, with a Wii U release to follow.
