505 Games has confirmed Terraria will be released on the Switch eShop on 27th June. Prior to this, we found out the alpha build of the game had been sent to the original developer Re-Logic at the start of this year.

In the same announcement post, it was also revealed a physical version of the game would be released at a later date. Here's the announcement from the Terraria forum:

You read that correctly. Terraria Switch will be live to the world for digital download in 2 days! We love our fans, and since the game is ready, we figured we would just get it into your hands as soon as possible. It will take us a bit more time to get out the physical retail version, but until then we hope you will enjoy the full game available for download via Nintendo eShop.

This will be the third time Terraria has been released on a Nintendo platform. The title was first released on the 3DS in 2015 and followed up with a release on the Wii U in 2016. If you haven't played it before, it's similar to Minecraft, but has definitely carved its own niche within the survival crafting genre.

Will you be adding this to your Switch digital library on release? Or will you hold out for a physical copy? Tell us below.
