SteamWorld Quest Coming to Nintendo Switch this April

Posted by: Sam Tree | 26 March 2019

The talented team behind the SteamWorld series of games has confirmed that their latest entry into the series, SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, will be released in April on the Nintendo Switch eShop as a digital-only title.

Originally announced at the beginning of this year, SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech is a card-based RPG which sees the series take a dramatic new direction; especially in comparison to their studio’s other titles, “SteamWorld Dig“ and SteamWorld Heist.

“The SteamWorld community has asked us to make an RPG for a long time, so I’m really happy and satisfied that we’re delivering such a polished title way sooner than anyone expected. Since we announced in January we’ve watched the growing excitement among gamers, press and content creators. I’m confident that fans of RPGs and previous SteamWorld games will adore SteamWorld Quest because it’s an absolute gem. We will keep the momentum going via our website and social media channels until the release and beyond,” says Brjánn Sigurgeirsson, CEO at Image & Form.

In SteamWorld Quest, players take control of a party of aspiring SteamBots in a magical world filled with loot (it wouldn’t be a SteamWorld game otherwise!), dragons, magic, knights and more by crafting their own deck of cards used for turn-based combat.

If like me, you’re ravenous for more, you can check out a 20-minute gameplay video below.

SteamWorld Quest is due for digital release on the 25th of April 2019 on the Nintendo Switch for £22.49 ($24.99 / €24.99).
