Super Rare Games will pursue more SteamWorld physical Switch releases if SteamWorld Quest sells well

A quest for more releases

Super Rare Games is releasing SteamWorld Quest on Switch in physical form, and if it sells well, fans of Image and Form's franchise will have even more to look forward to. Super Rare Games has said they'll work on bringing both SteamWorld Heist and SteamWorld Dig: A Fistful of Dirt to the Switch physically as long as SteamWorld Quest is well-received. In other words, lock in your preorder now and show Super Rare Games you're interested!

SteamWorld Quest gets a Physical Release on the Switch via Super Rare Games

The quest for a physical release

Super Rare Games today have announced their partnership with Image & Form Games and Thunderful Publishing to physically release Steamworld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech for the Nintendo Switch™. Pre-orders for the game open on November the 7th, exclusively at superraregames.com.

Interestingly, the game was signed in a rather unique way to that of a traditional deal. CEO of Image & Form, Brjann Sigurgeirsson met Super Rare Games’ George Perkins over a game of chess.

“We had just released the Mutant Mudds Collection with Jools Watsham and we were on a call catching up. During the call I mentioned that I had been playing a lot of chess recently, to which Jools mentioned that Brjann was the man to beat. From there I added him as a friend on an online chess website and the rest is history.” said George Perkins.

“I jokingly mentioned that if I beat him he would have to sign with us to release SteamWorld Quest physically! I got beat very, very badly but luckily we still managed to sign the deal. I hope we can bring the rest of the amazing SteamWorld series as a physical release in the near future’.

"Physical games are the bomb! It’s one of the reasons why I love (and remain undefeated at) chess. So naturally, I’m excited to work with Super Rare on SteamWorld Quest and beyond. SteamWorld fans have been asking us for months for a physical Quest release and finally, we can lift the veil off this amazing edition of our darling RPG. A ton of passion and creative work went into the game and the Super Rare box celebrates all of that with great ceremony. I hope everyone will enjoy what we’ve cooked up… Dinner is served!" said Brjann Sigurgeirsson CEO of Image & Form

SteamWorld Quest heading to Switch in Japan

A quest to Japan

Did you know that SteamWorld Quest still hasn't launched for the Switch in Japan? That's about to change, thanks to Flyhigh Works. The company has revealed that they'll be publishing the title in Japan, and it's due out June 27th, 2019. The title is priced at ¥2,500.

SteamWorld Quest soundtrack now available

Music for an adventure

The widely reQuested SteamWorld Quest Soundtrack is out now on Bandcamp and Steam (as DLC). Compared to what you’ll find in the game, these songs are completely remastered and sound better than ever. It’s a real treat for your ears!

Have a listen to it on Bandcamp and, if you like what you hear, please consider purchasing the album (or individual tracks) in order to support the studio.

The album features 36 beautiful tracks from three multi-talented composers and a bunch of awesome musicians. We’ve never had so many acoustic instruments on a SteamWorld soundtrack before. As a bonus, you’ll find two unreleased variations on the main theme that you might recognize from the SteamWorld Quest trailers. This is the first time they’re available for anyone to listen to without in-game sound effects.

Is it coming to Spotify and iTunes/Apple Music?

Yes! It might just take us a little while longer to figure everything out. We hope to release all previous SteamWorld soundtracks there as well. Stay tuned!

Will there be a physical CD or vinyl record?

Simple answer: We’d love to! We did fabulous vinyl records for Dig 1+2 together with Fangamer and it would be really nice to have a matching record for Quest. Again, stay tuned!

Can I download the amazing album art somewhere?

Yes, up above! It’s a hand-painted homage to some of our favorite game soundtracks (can you guess which?). The artist is none other than Agnes Mikucka, the Quest art director. The cover really captures the personalities of the main cast, don’t you think?
