Earlier this year developer Concerned Ape announced that they were looking into bringing the hit farming-simulator to the Wii U eShop. However, it seems like that won’t be the case anymore, as they announced today that the game has been officially canceled for the Wii U. Here’s what they had to say in a blog post:
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.
Thankfully, it wasn’t all bad news. Concerned Ape didn’t just announce a Nintendo Switch version, but also a PS4 and Xbox One version as well.
If you have yet to play Stardew Valley it is about your character inheriting an old farm, where you must grow crops, manage your livestock, and much more. The game has been performing amazingly on PC, and players just love its minimalistic art style and its addicting gameplay.
Stardew Valley will launch in North America for PS4 on Dec. 13, 2016; While the European version (X1 & PS4) is slated for the following day, Dec. 14th. There is still no release date for the US version for the Xbox One as of now.
