"There will be some new features and tweaks but essentially it'll be the same SteamWorld Dig we all know and love :) /Julius" ... "I can't tell what exactly will be new but I promise it will be unique in some aspects."
@Pokefreak911 I like Spelunky a lot, I just think the platforming "physics" are a bit weird and I'm sort of morally opposed to time limits in games so the ghost bothers me. It's still great though, and it perfect for a handheld since you can play in short burst and it has unlimited replay value.
But unfortunately Steamworld Dig does use the shoulder buttons and you can't play the game without them.
@Pokefreak911 Sorry man I feel your pain, I have a DSi with non-functioning triggers so It's only useful for touch screen games like Link N' Launch, although having a dedicated Link N' Launch system isn't so bad.
EDIT: PM me if yer interested in a cheap used 3DS XL, blue and black, I'm selling...
