Stardew Valley’s Multiplayer to Debut on Switch

Stardew Valley’s Multiplayer to Debut on Switch

Stardew Valley – the indie darling, which sees players manage their own farm in a quiet town – is coming to the Switch. In addition, the highly requested co-op multiplayer mode will be debuting on Nintendo’s home/portable hybrid.

“… I’m very, very grateful to have this opportunity. I’m excited about the future. I have many ideas, and I want to keep making games for a long time to come,” said the game’s creator Eric Barone, regarding its one-year anniversary. “I’ve learned so much from Stardew Valley… the importance of beta testing, how to make decent pixel art, how to use Steam, how to maintain a game after launch. And I’ve made plenty of mistakes, too. But I try to view any blunders in a positive light… fertile ground from which to improve and grow stronger.”

The game – which is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One – will be making its way to Nintendo's latest console this winter.

Coop could be fun both working on the same farm - or even having your own separate farms. Might need to introduce some new mechanics like trading between each other and what not. Romancing the villagers could be interesting if both players are fighting over the same people!

Just to clarify: the Switch Stardew Valley multiplayer announcement DOES NOT mean that PC will get multiplayer later. PC will still be first

Stardew Valley is coming to #NintendoSwitch, and will be the first console to support the new multiplayer feature. Look for it in 2017!

"console" so it's multiplayer is not debuting on the switch.

Yeah, enough with these poorly worded or confused "First on our system" (but really only first on systems in our particular category) announcements. Can't they just be happy to announce that they're getting the game and there'll be multiplayer available and leave it at that??! I feel like 100% of the time these announcements tend to be misleading at best or else completely wrong.
