Over the past few months, it has been well documented that Stardew Valley has been going through submission and testing for release on the Nintendo Switch.
Well now the wait is over, as Chucklefish’s CEO Finn Brice has revealed on Twitter that the game has been approved for release on the Nintendo Switch, with a release date being finalised.

Stardew Valley originally was released in February of 2016, on both PC and current gen consoles. It was met with high praise, and has received numerous accolades – including best independent game at the 2016 Game Awards and Golden Joysticks.
Inheriting a run-down farm from his grandfather and wanting to escape the stresses of urban life, gameplay consists of managing the player’s time and energy to maintain and expand a fully functioning farm. You’ll raise livestock and tend to crops, slowly becoming a member of the local community by coercing with NPCs. Due to the game’s open ended nature however, players can go about their activities or business as they see fit, and procedurally generated caves offer a variety of both resources to gather and creatures to battle.
I cannot wait to get my hands on this title when it releases on the Switch, but do fear I will lose many hours to this game! Will you be downloading Stardew Valley when it releases? Let us know in the comments!
