The popular farming simulator Stardew Valley has had fans excited for its Switch release since the original announcement, but it wasn’t until now that they finally got to pinpoint a true release date. The developer of Stardew Valley announced the release date and price for the Switch version today: October 5 for $14.99.
“I’m very happy to see Stardew come to a Nintendo console… I grew up on Nintendo, after all! This will not only be the first time Stardew Valley appears on a Nintendo platform, but also the first time Stardew will be on a portable system,” said Concerned Ape.
In perhaps a pure coincidence, this also falls in line with 2017’s harvest moon appearance in the night sky, which ties in to the farming game of the same name and one of the main inspirations for Stardew Valley.
