Image & Form Games has announced SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech. The new turn-based card RPG is coming first to Nintendo Switch sometime this year. And it was announced during today’s Nintendo UK Indie Highlights video.
According to Image & Form, the development team decided to make an RPG because it was the most heavily requested genre by the community for SteamWorld to tackle.
“For years, the SteamWorld community has asked us to create an RPG” said Image & Form in the press release announcing SteamWorld Quest: World of Gilgamech. “In fact, on multiple occasions we’ve asked our followers what they’d like us to make next, and so far an RPG has been the number one request.” Hopefully, this means Image & Form fans will be happy with this announcement.
