The PC indie smash hit Stardew Valley is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and Wii U later this year in Q4.
Stardew Valley released for PC in February and quickly became a big hit. The farming simulation RPG was inspired by the Harvest Moon franchise.
In a post on the Stardew Valley site, developer ConcernedApe stated:
With the help of Chucklefish and Sickhead Games, I’m expecting to have these versions ready in time for the winter holidays!
It’s very important to me that playing Stardew Valley with console controllers is intuitive and effortless. I’ll be the first to admit that the current, rudimentary controller support in the PC version is far from ideal, and it will need to be adjusted prior to the launch.
I’m also excited about the possibility of utilizing special console features like the Wii U’s second screen!
Co-op support for the game is still in development, as is the Mac and Linux versions.
Smith’s Sentiment: I am super excited for this one. I’m a console gamer, and I’ve been holding out on this just waiting for the PS4 version. I absolutely loved the old Harvest Moon games and this appears to be all of the charm that made those games great plus a lot more. I can’t wait for this, it’s going to be such a time sink for me just like Harvest Moon 64 was way back in the game.
