Stardew Valley the hit PC indie farming simulator is cancelled for the Wii U. In a statement posted today, the developer (Chucklefish LTD) stated the versions of Stardew Valley for the Xbox One and PS4 are still on track, while the Wii U version was being cancelled due to the current state of the Wii U and the video game industry. The good news for Nintendo fans is the developer is interested in the Nintendo Switch – see the statement below.
Stardew Valley will not be coming to the Wii U, however. 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. 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.
Stardew Valley is an open-ended country-life RPG, which released on the PC on February 26th, 2016. The version for Stardew Valley on the PS4 releases on December 13th 2016, while the game is releasing on the Xbox One on December 14th 2016. No word on an official development announcement for the Nintendo Switch.
