Stardew Valley Celebrates Anniversary With Release Date on Android

Stardew Valley Celebrates Anniversary With Release Date on Android

All that's missing at this point is a version for your microwave.

Stardew Valley is celebrating its three year anniversary with yet another port. Developer Eric Barone, better known as ConcernedApe, revealed today that the popular farming sim will be coming to Android in March.

Barone revealed the release date for the Android version of Stardew Valley with a quick tweet. "Hey everyone, happy Stardew 3rd anniversary, also want to let you know that Stardew Valley for Android has a release date: March 14th!"

When it launches next month, the Android port will join versions on pretty much every major platform, including PC, iOS, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. Heck, even the PlayStation Vita has Stardew Valley.

Not all versions are created equal though. As some fans have pointed out, the PS4 and Xbox One versions still don't have multiplayer. The Switch version of Stardew Valley is the lone console version with multiplayer, having been updated in December 2018. The iOS version of Stardew Valley still lacks multiplayer, so it's unlikely to be on the Android port barring a surprise update.

Barone has been steadily updating Stardew Valley since it launched in 2016. The most recent 1.3 update includes a new Night Market event, new interactive scenes, and even the ability to finally build a house for Pam, Stardew Valley's surliest drunk.

With Stardew Valley continuing to go strong, we named it one of USG's 25 best games on Steam. We also played Stardew Valley for a series of gameplay diaries, though Caty sadly didn't like Stardew Valley as much as everyone else.

If you happen to pick it up when it launches on Android next month and you're confused, make sure to check our guide to essential tips for Stardew Valley. Stardew Valley is a massive game, so you'll be referring to pages like our legendary fish locations often. Trust me, I've been there. I've got a cool 80 hours logged on the Switch version alone.
