Image & Form Games' platforming-and-mining title SteamWorld Dig will arrive on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 this year, CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson announced on the official PlayStation blog.

SteamWorld Dig initially launched on Nintendo's 3DS eShop last August and arrived on Steam for Windows PC and Mac on Dec. 5. The game was on top of the European and Australian eShop charts in the weeks following its release, bumping Animal Crossing: New Leaf off the number one position.

According to Sigurgeirsson, Image & Form Games' received requests to launch the title on the PS Vita since it was first released. The studio decided to release the game on Steam first as a console port was deemed as a "long" project and "That way, we would have single-screen play and HD graphics just begging to be brought to PlayStation."

"Now that SteamWorld Dig is coming to PS4 and PS Vita, we're so proud we could cry," Sigurgeirsson wrote. "Having the game on a console is a long-standing dream, and we're very pleased that console will be the magnificent PS4. SteamWorld Dig has already proven itself as a great handheld game, and it feels like the Vita was made for it. The crisp, vibrant graphics almost pop off the screen, and the controls are super solid."
