Update: Barone has canceled the Wii U release in favor of bringing the game to the Nintendo Switch.
“Looking at Wii U and the current gaming landscape, we made the difficult choice to shift our development efforts to creating a version for Nintendo Switch,” said Barone. “I am really looking forward to the Switch, and I believe that the Switch’s unique capabilities could create some exciting opportunities for Stardew Valley. I do want to emphasize that I am absolutely committed to seeing Stardew Valley on Nintendo platforms, and I really do appreciate your support and understanding in this.”
It was also announced that the PlayStation 4 version of the game will be available on December 13.
Original Story: As stated in a blog post by developer Eric Barone from earlier this year, farming RPG Stardew Valley is coming to the Xbox One on December 14. Pre-orders will go live on November 30 for an undisclosed price (the PC version currently sells for $14.99).
