505 Games' Terraria is a 2D sandbox game that falls somewhere in between Minecraft and Metroid on the gameplay spectrum. Featuring vibrant pixel art, exploration, quests, crafting and randomly generated 2D worlds, it's really a wonder this one has taken so long to find its way onto Nintendo platforms. After all, it's been available on just about every device that's capable of playing games, from iOS to Playstation, except for Nintendo platforms. Until now, possibly.
A page for Terraria was recently spotted on retailer Gamefly's site. The service has it listed for release on both Wii U and 3DS on 31st October, but that seems like a placeholder date. 505 Games has been silent on this development as of yet; we'll keep you posted if and when an official announcement is made.
The Nintendo eShop has proven to be quite the excellent marketplace for indie games to flourish, so it comes as no real surprise that such a popular indie title may be on the way, with this one seemingly coming to retail too. As there's currently an absence of good quality Minecraft style sandbox titles on the storefront, too, this one has the potential to fit right in.
