Boxing clever

We all knew it was going to happen, but it has finally been confirmed - Terraria is coming to Nintendo platforms.

Re-Logic's 2D platforming sandbox title will be getting a retail release on both the 3DS and Wii U, with both versions offering touch-screen support which should make the Minecraft-style world creation a bit easier. The handheld edition has four-player local play, while the Wii U version will allow four players to use the same screen (with some naturally using Wii Remotes). The home version also boasts an eight player online mode, too.

The bad news is that the publisher doesn't anticipate a release until "early 2016", which feels like an awful long time away to us.
