SteamWorld Heist to be released on December 10th, pricing points announced

The following information comes from the official SteamWorld Heist website...

SteamWorld Heist launches on Nintendo 3DS in the Americas, Europe, Australia and New Zealand on December 10 at 14:00 UTC. We strongly suspect the game will rock your socks off. (Fortunately, we’ve been told that new socks are in abundant supply where you live.) The Japanese version will come later, as will all other platforms.

The regular price point will be $19.99 / €19.99 / £14.99. Yeah, we know it’s cheap for this much game, but that’s a whole other discussion. Let the simple comparison below suffice (it’s objective too, since math never lies):

  • SteamWorld Dig costs $9.99.
  • SteamWorld Heist is at least 10 times bigger and better than Dig.
  • Ergo: you’re getting a minimum of 5 times the value.
  • And the game takes at least 20 to 25 hours to finish!

Lastly, a trailer for the game is expected to be released on December 8th. 

Super Mario Maker - Mario & Luigi Paper Jam costume coming on December 3rd

GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Last week's video content from GoNintendo

Here's something completely unrelated to Nintendo. Feel like helping me figure out what song is stuck in my head? Check out this tweet, listen to my recording and try to figure out the song! It's been bugging me for two days now and no one has come up with the right answer. Hopefully YOU can change that! See you in a few, short hours.

Last week brought us Thanksgiving, which threw a bit of a monkey wrench into our usual video plans. We didn't have the opportunity to record another Parents Play feature, since my family was a bit preoccupied with coming together, eating a lot and enjoying family time! That said, we still managed to do our regular podcast. That hasn't missed a week since its inception and it's not going to start skipping weeks now!

Please enjoy our latest podcast vid and we'll get back to pumping out more Parents Play features as soon as possible.
