By no means is Terraria a brand spanking new game, having been originally released just over eight years ago on Steam and eventually making its way to mainstream home and handheld consoles as well as iOS devices. Over this period of time, a number of major updates to the game have been released, with the fourth of these called Journey's End due to launch sometime later this year.
Up until now, the Nintendo Switch has been a notable absentee from the lineup of supported consoles despite the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U having picked up the title in the past but that is set to change according to an announcement by 505 Games:
"Greetings Terrarians from around the world! We are ecstatic to announce that Terraria will be launching on Nintendo Switch on Thursday, June 27!
You read that correctly. Terraria Switch will be live to the world for digital download in 2 days! We love our fans, and since the game is ready, we figured we would just get it into your hands as soon as possible. It will take us a bit more time to get out the physical retail version, but until then we hope you will enjoy the full game available for download via Nintendo eShop."
Furthermore, in celebration of the game's release on the Switch, prizes will be given away in daily events held in the Terraria Discord server while an AMA with Pipeworks Studios, the developers behind the Switch port, will be held at the same location on Wednesday, 26 June at midday PST.
It remains to be seen as to when physical copies of Terraria will eventually become available but, if you need your fix on Nintendo's hybrid console, then the digital version will be your only choice on June 27 for an apparent price of $30 according to recent discussions on Reddit.
