Sweden-based studio Image & Form Games revealed that its mining-themed 2D platformer SteamWorld Dig is coming to the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2014, following up on previous releases for the Nintendo 3DS and PC platforms.

SteamWorld Dig is an exploration-based platformer in which players drill through the surface of an alien planet and upgrade their abilities using cash earned during excavations. Items purchased above the surface can be used to dig deeper underground, where players will encounter richer mineral veins and learn more about the protagonist's past.

SteamWorld Dig will feature consolidated single-screen play when it hits the PS4 and Vita this year, along with upgraded HD graphics ported over from the Steam version. A release date for PSN edition has not been announced.
