Thunderful Games announced SteamWorld Headhunter today as part of the Thunderful World conference, revealing that the new game in the series will be a 3D, third-person co-op action adventure game.

Accompanying the reveal trailer (which you can watch above) is a description confirming that SteamWorld is being taken in a "fresh direction", with the game serving as a "stylised and colourful adventure with a head-popping twist."

Here's what you can expect from the latest entry:

"Taking the series in a fresh direction, SteamWorld Headhunter is a stylised and colourful, third-person co-op action adventure with a head-popping twist. While maintaining the style and charm that’s helped make SteamWorld such a beloved franchise, this move into 3D represents a brand new approach to the series. Thunderful are excited to share more about their vision for this internally developed title soon."
