‘Stardew Valley’ Wii U Version Cancelled
Bad news for Nintendo gamers, though. In a blog post, ConcernedApe also announced that “Stardew Valley” will not be released for the Wii U. Not to worry, though, as the developer said that the game will soon be available for the Nintendo Switch.
“Looking at Wii U and the current gaming landscape,” ConcernedApe wrote, “we made the difficult choice to shift our development efforts to creating a version for Nintendo Switch.”
The developer admits that he looks forward to Nintendo’s upcoming gaming device. He believes that “the Switch’s unique capabilities could create some exciting opportunities for Stardew Valley.”
‘Stardew Valley’ Becomes Lovable Hit
“Stardew Valley” is a farming simulation RPG that puts players in the shoes of a farmer in charge of taking care of his/her grandfather’s farm. In the process, the players encounter a town full of unforgettable characters.
It’s not just farming that’s the main focus here. Aside from planting crops and taking care of animals, activities such as fishing and mining increase the game’s replayability. Once the player is ready, he or she can marry any of the single bachelor/bachelorettes in town.
“Stardew Valley” was released on February 26, 2016 and instantly received positive reviews from gamers and critics alike. The game is currently nominated for Best Indie Game at The Game Awards 2016.
A new trailer has also been released to make us more excited about the new versions of the game.
