SteamWorld Quest trailer drops ahead of this week's release

Check out the SteamWorld Quest trailer ahead of its official debut later this week.


SteamWorld Quest is an epic RPG in the SteamWorld series that's coming to the Switch this week on Thursday, April 25.

You'll be able to set off on an exciting journey through a steampunk world beginning this week, and in the excitement, Thunderful Publishing has released the game's launch trailer ahead of its big debut. Check out the new footage in the clip below – it looks like an exciting RPG for Switch enthusiasts – and aren't we all?

“The SteamWorld community has asked us to make an RPG for a long time, so I’m really happy and satisfied that we’re delivering such a polished title way sooner than anyone expected. Since we announced in January we’ve watched the growing excitement among gamers, press and content creators. I’m confident that fans of RPGs and previous SteamWorld games will adore SteamWorld Quest because it’s an absolute gem. We will keep the momentum going via our website and social media channels until the release and beyond,” said Brjánn Sigurgeirsson, CEO at Image & Form, earlier this year on the game.

There have been several other SteamWorld games in the series over the years as well, including SteamWorld Tower Defense, SteamWorld Dig, SteamWorld Heist, and SteamWorld Dig 2. Something they all share in common are their steampunk aesthetic, and they've been featured on various platforms. SteamWorld Quest will be a timed exclusive on Nintendo Switch, but that's where it's hitting, for all you Switch enthusiasts.

As such, the game is hitting Nintendo Switch first on April 25 for now. It'll run you $24.99, so if it looks like something you're keen on jumping into, be sure to support it when it launches on Thursday! Have you played any of the other SteamWorld games? Let us know in the comments below.
