The Switch will also be the first platform to receive multiplayer functionality, which will be coming to the game in early 2018.
Stardew Valley, a farming simulation game inspired by Harvest Moon and developed by ConcernedApe, has sold over a million copies and received widespread critical acclaim.
The development team at ConcernedApe originally announced that development was moving from Wii U to Switch on November 29, 2016.
Brian Barnett has loved video games ever since his uncle Jimmy introduced him to them at the ripe old age of five. His wife, Audrey, was also introduced to video games by her uncle, lending credence to Brian’s theory that behind every gamer, there is a cool uncle.
Since playing Super Mario Bros. on the NES, Brian has had a passion for Nintendo games. The first thing he did when he started earning money was save up and buy himself a Game Boy, and they quickly became inseparable. Through the years, this led to his special love of portable game consoles, so the release of the Switch is the perfect storm of Nintendo action he has been waiting for.
In addition to his gaming obsession, Brian enjoys playing drums, writing and listening to music, and hosting a weekly video game and nerd culture podcast.
He is an extrovert, and loves talking about and playing games with others, so let him know if you want to team up and play together!
