Swedish developer Image & Form has announced that its steampunk mining platformer SteamWorld Dig is coming to both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. It will be digging a hole in the PlayStation Network next month for €8.99/$9.99. The game will feature cross-buy, meaning that once you purchase it on one console you'll be able to redeem it on the other for free.

The title will see you take control of Rusty, a mining steam-bot. The goal is to tunnel your way into the Earth searching for gold and other rare ores. As you get deeper, you'll face various enemies, and you'll need to make sure that you have enough resources to keep going further. This is a Metroidvania style platformer in which your progression is aided by weapon upgrades.

Originally launching in August 2013 on other platforms, it garnered plenty of critical acclaim, and now the PlayStation community will be able to understand why. Let us know if you'll be picking up this steamy release in the comments section below.
