Stardew Valley hits Xbox One and PS4 in December, Nintendo Switch at a later date


The Wii U version has been dropped

[Update: Stardew Valley is also coming to PS4 next month, on December 13, according to creator Eric Barone. Unsurprisingly, the planned Wii U port has been dropped in favor of a Nintendo Switch version.

"I believe that the Switch's unique capabilities could create some exciting opportunities for Stardew Valley," he wrote. "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."]

I wasn't so sure Stardew Valley would make it to any consoles before the new year, but the feel-good farmer life sim will be releasing for Xbox One on December 14, 2016. So, really soon!

Creator Eric Barone has previously discussed Wii U and PlayStation 4 ports as well, though today's news seems to be solely about the Xbox One version. I have to assume the rest will follow and hopefully release this year as well. This would make for a great holiday-break game.

As far as pricing and what content will make it in at launch, it looks like we'll have to wait on that info.
