Stardew Valley has been a major success on PC, with its charming aesthetic and gameplay hooks earning a lot of fans. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Harvest Moon, it blends farming and living off the land with elements of adventure.
The pleasing news is that the developer, Concerned Ape, has officially confirmed that it's coming to the Wii U and other download stores (PS4, Xbox One) 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's a pleasing announcement and this is likely to be a hit on consoles. Check out its trailer below and let us know what you think.
