Stardew Valley Announced For Nintendo Switch
Having sold well over 1 million copies, Stardew Valley has been somewhat of a phenomenon on the PC. We’ve known it’s been in development for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for awhile now, but there was always a question mark hanging over a Nintendo system release.
It had been planned to possibly come out for the Wii U, but given the fact that it’s all but dead, it’s been decided to move the project over to the Nintendo Switch. The game is hitting PS4 and Xbox One on December 13, 2016. It’s currently unknown as to when it will release on the Switch. The following was posted on the official site for the game:
Stardew Valley will not be coming to the Wii U, however. Looking at Wii U and the current gaming landscape, we made the difficult choice to shift our development efforts to creating a version for Nintendo Switch. I am really looking forward to the Switch, and I believe that the Switch’s unique capabilities could create some exciting opportunities for Stardew Valley. I do want to emphasize that I am absolutely committed to seeing Stardew Valley on Nintendo platforms, and I really do appreciate your support and understanding in this.
