Stardew Valley Coming to PS4 and Xbox One Soon, Nintendo Switch Someday

Concerned Ape is ready for the Valley to come to consoles.

In a post on the official Stardew Valley blog, developer Eric 'ConcernedApe' Barone announced that Stardew Valley finally has a release date on consoles. The game will be coming to PlayStation 4 on December 13, 2016, with an Xbox One release on the next day, December 14. Since Harvest Moon got its start on a home console, it only makes sense for the game to launch on current models.

Barone also had a version of Stardew Valley in the works for Nintendo's Wii U, but that version has been canned for a Switch port.

"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," wrote Barone. "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."

There was no release date given for the Switch version of Stardew Valley.
