One of our favorite releases of 2015 and just an all-around wonderful game, SteamWorld Heist is a beloved Nintendo 3DS hit that is finally making the leap to other platforms. The latest from Image & Form will be raiding Sony fans’ consoles this week when it is made available for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.
The game will be available when the PlayStation Store updates tomorrow, and, yes, it will support cross-buy. I haven’t played SteamWorld Heist through a television just yet, but I can’t see how the experience would be better than from the palm of your hand. This is a game that was clearly made to be played on the go.
SteamWorld Heist is a strategy game spin-off of the popular indie platformer SteamWorld Dig. Both games feature a universe where robots call the shots, but different factions always find themselves desperate for water to fuel their steam engines. Naturally, this leads to conflicts over resources.
Be sure to check it out if you are not yet a convert to Image & Form’s excellent series.
