24 January 2019 – by Jack Taylor

SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, the latest game in the SteamWorld series, is coming to Nintendo Switch this year.

Revealed as part of Nintendo's latest Indie Showcase on 23 January, SteamWorld Quest blends role-playing action with card game battles, with more than 100 cards to choose from when creating decks.

On the subject of the new game, Image & Form CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson has said that a RPG has been the "number one request" from SteamWorld fans over the years, with the team deciding to create a "new kind of game" and with more details due over the coming months.

Image & Form and its publisher Thunderful Games have also confirmed that SteamWorld Quest will launch on Nintendo Switch first, with releases on other platforms to follow later in the year.
