Stardew Valley finally releases on Switch this Thursday

After months of waiting, Stardew Valley will release on the Switch eShop this Thursday, October 5th. The game will cost $14.99 and represents the first portable version by developer ConcernedApe, who had this to say:

I’m very happy to see Stardew come to a Nintendo console … I grew up on Nintendo, after all! 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.

ConcernedApe is just one person after all so the Switch version missing its summer release date by just a few weeks isn’t a big deal. After reading the chapter on Stardew Valley in Blood, Sweat and Pixels last month its hard to hold that against this one-man developer.

There is no news on a physical version though a Switch cart + box with Stardew’s charming artwork would be amazing. We’ll let you know how the best farming simulator in recent memory fares on the Switch in our review in the near future.
