Stardew Valley Switch

Finally, after what seems like forever, we've secured a release date for Stardew Valley on the Switch. The game was originally confirmed for the Switch in 2016, but until yesterday we were never quite sure when. However, the wait is now over. This Thursday, October 5, Switch owners will finally be able to play Stardew Valley at home and on the go. The game is even priced the same as every other console and Steam, with a U.S. price of $14.99. This is one of the most anticipated indies on the Switch and we greatly look forward to diving in again on the hybrid console; be on the lookout for our review!

For the uninitiated, Stardew Valley is a 2D farming/life simulator. It's styled after the older 2D Harvest Moon games, and plays every bit as well. It first released on Steam in February of 2016 and took the internet by storm. It's one of the most succesful indie games of all time and has sold over 3 million copies on Steam alone. Even more impressive is the fact that it was entirely created by a single developer: ConcernedApe. If you haven't given the game a try, now's the perfect chance! I promise you'll love it.
