Stardew Valley for Nintendo Switch finally gets a release date

Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley is one incredible farming game and having it on the Nintendo Switch will be fantastic for on-the-go fun - we'll finally have a title that will rival the highest total game time next to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. One of the most exciting success stories of 2016, it turns out that the appeal of playing Stardew Valley on the go is very strong among Switch owners. It'll set you back $17 AUD which seems fairly decent for the amount of hours you're likely to put into the game.

We've known for some time that Stardew Valley was coming to the Nintendo Switch this year, but a precise launch date wasn't available until today.

The game will be available on the eShop for $14.99 Dollars. Developer Eric "ConcernedApe" Barone announced in an official blog post that the game's Switch version launches October 5.

Nintendo's little console that could has so far been home to a heck of a lot of indie ports so far, but I doubt too many people are complaining given that it's a lot of quality indie games and not those sorry excuse for indie games that aren't real games where you just open drawers and beat the game by going to the attic. "I grew up on Nintendo, after all", wrote creator Eric Barone. Some of these features include up to three player-controlled farmhands joining the farm and possibly, player-to-player marriages.

Chucklefish, the studio that published Stardew Valley, is working with Barone on the multiplayer expansion. It will be arriving on the Nintendo eShop beginning on October 5 according to the CEO and Designer at Chucklefish.

Stardew Valley originally released in February a year ago and its gloriously exuberant take on Harvest Moon style farm life sims was a barnstorming success, managing to rack up more than a million sales in little over a month. Dallas, Texas-based Sickhead Games was responsible for the PS4, Xbox One and now, Switch ports.
