Image & Form has announced that SteamWorld Heist will be out for 3DS on December 10th in the Americas, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

It'll cost £14.99 / $19.99 at full price but will be discounted to £11.99 / $16.99 until December 31st.

Plus, if you buy it this year (before we reach 2016) you'll get an exclusive 3DS Home Menu theme. It apparently won't be available at any other time.

SteamWorld Heist is the next game after the Platinum Award-winning SteamWorld Dig but it has little in common with it.

SteamWorld Heist

Rather than an exploration platformer on a dusty planet, Heist is a turn-based tactical shooter set in space - you can find out more about it in our hands-on preview.

SteamWorld Heist will be coming to Japan on 3DS at a later date. The same goes for the PS Vita, PC, Wii U, PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions.
