Stardew Valley for Nintendo Switch Announced
Stardew Valley Nintendo Switch is happening. This was just announced by ConcernedApe via Stardew Valley’s blog. This definitely just made my day!
Stardew Valley was originally slated to release on the WiiU. Since the Nintendo Switch release is right around the corner, ConcernedApe has decided to bring their prized farming simulator to the Nintendo Switch. Here’s what ConcernedApe had to say about it:
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.
While it’s sad to see the WiiU miss out on this great title, I would much rather have Stardew Valley Nintendo Switch edition than a WiiU edition. While we have no information specific to the Nintendo Switch version of this title, there was a reveal trailer for the Xbox One version released a couple days ago. We should be able to expect a very similar experience on the Nintendo Switch.
I personally am very excited about this announcement. Yesterday, I had just tweeted at ConcernedApe letting them know we wanted a Nintendo Switch release and then this was confirmed. Maybe I should start tweeting at animal crossing… What do you guys think about Stardew Valley? Anyone as hyped as we are? Let us know on Twitter @NinSwitchNet or here in the comments.
