Described as the 2D, sprite-based Mincraft, Re-Logic’s Terraria is now headed to Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 through digital means. Re-Logic has teamed up with 505 Games to bring the charming adventure to console gamers, but unfortunately details are very scarce at the moment. Both 505 and Re-Logic seem to be ecstatic in seeing what can be done:
“I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3! To see it come so far is a complete shock, especially after such humble beginnings. It’s always been my dream to have as many people as possible know and enjoy Terraria as much as I have, and this is another big step in that direction! It’s been awesome working with 505 Games, and I can’t wait for everyone to see the additional features that they’ve been able to bring to this new edition of the game,” says Andrew “Redigit” Spinks.
“The block-building genre has taken the world by storm and Terraria has garnered a massive following through its increased focus on adventure and discovery.” said Tim Woodley, Head of Global Brand for 505 Games. “We’re looking forward to bringing an already hugely successful experience to a brand new console audience and we can’t wait for the existing Terraria fan base to experience all-new content”.
Developed by Engine Software, the game will be available sometime in early 2013 (like every upcoming game) and priced at a very reasonable $9.99 (or 800 Microsoft Points). The inclusion of exclusive features will be announced in the near future.
