Earlier today Stardew Valley was officially confirmed to be coming to the Xbox One thanks to Microsoft’s E3 press conference. We also are aware that the game would be coming to the Playstation 4, but this is not all the games developer, Concerned Ape has confirmed that Stardew Valley will also be headed to the Wii U, and better yet the game will be arriving this holiday season. Chucklefish and Sickhead Games are assisting with the ports to release in the Holiday season.
As part of the announcement the Wii U is also singled out, with ambition to make use of the GamePad’s screen.
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!
It was exciting news to learn the game was coming to the Xbox One but I am honestly more excited for the Wii U version especially with the developers ambition to make use of the Wii U’s unique features. To help you get excited you can watch a trailer for the game below:
