One of the better games to come out of Nintendo's 3DS eShop, SteamWorld Dig, will release on Steam on Dec. 5, Rock Paper Shotgun reports.

SteamWorld Dig was originally released on the eShop back in August. It follows Rusty, a steam-powered mining robot. He has come to the tiny desert town of Tumbleton to explore a mine left to him by his Uncle Joe. The others in the village don't know what became of Joe, but they assume that something interesting lies deep within the mine. Parts Spelunky and parts Metroid, we thought that SteamWorld Dig was definitely worth playing. You can read our full review of the game here.

The PC version of the game will add achievements, cloud-saving, better audio and unspecified "additional content." More importantly, it will feature HD graphics, greatly improving on the 3DS' 400x240 resolution. The higher resolution will also allow you to see a lot more of your surroundings at any given moment.

Developer Image & Form has said that they have been busy porting the game over to PC, but that they continue to work on a SteamWorld sequel.
