SteamWorld Heist may share half its title with the underground-dwelling SteamWorld Dig, but it's a pretty far cry, genre-wise. SteamWorld Heist, which launches today on the Nintendo 3DS eShop, abandons the resource mining of its predecessor in favor of turn-based tactics. Imagine a two-dimensional XCOM, with cover mechanics and real-time aiming, and you're getting the picture.

You can watch us play through a few early missions of SteamWorld Heist, which will also eventually arrive on Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U, Xbox One and iOS, in the video above.
