'Stardew Valley' Finally Comes to Switch This Week

Stardew Valley fans have been waiting for a Switch release date, and we finally have it. The beloved indie farming simulator/RPG comes out Thursday, October 5th for $14.99 USD.

"I'm very happy to see Stardew come to a Nintendo console ... I grew up on Nintendo, after all!" the game's developer, ConcernedApe, writes on the official website. "This will not only be the first time Stardew Valley appears on a Nintendo platform, but also the first time Stardew will be on a portable system."

Stardew Valley seems like a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch. It has the chill vibe of Animal Crossing (Nintendo, please give us a new Animal Crossing!) and bite-sized objectives perfect for quick, portable gameplay sessions. The game's promised co-op mode won't be included in launch. It comes out sometime in early 2018.
