Stardew Valley is almost ripe for Nintendo Switch

Stardew Valley is almost ripe for Nintendo Switch

We've been hearing about a Nintendo Switch port of Stardew Valley for a while now, but today we learn that its release is imminent. Earlier this year Nintendo confirmed at least 60 indie titles would be arriving for the Switch, with Stardew Valley being one of them. The game will cost $14.99 on the Nintendo Switch and will be the first time that Stardew Valley has appeared on either a portable system or a Nintendo platform. In an announcement via the game's website, ConcernedApe, aka Eric Barone (the developer), wrote that it will be available on October 5.

Eric Barone (aka ConcernedApe), the game's developer, confirmed the October 5 date through a tweet linking to a detailed brief on Stardew Valley's website.

However, this is hardly the end of the road for Stardew, with work on the multiplayer continuing, which is set to enter beta on PC later this year before being brought to consoles next year, with the Switch getting to enjoy this before other machines. Perhaps if the game is as successful as Chucklefish hopes, it could lead to further partnerships between it and Nintendo. Whether it finds the same success on the Switch as it has elsewhere remains to be seen, but fans won't have to wait long to find out.
