According to the official website of "Stardew Valley," the popular 2D video game on PC will be launched on the Xbox One and the PS4.

"Stardew Valley" not coming to Wii U

Game developer ConcernedApe revealed that "Stardew Valley" will not be released on the Wii U due to the current gaming market. They made a difficult choice of abandoning the console port and instead focus on putting their efforts in creating a version for the Nintendo Switch. The developers are looking forward to the upcoming console hybrid system, and they believe that its unique capabilities could create some exciting opportunities for the game.

"Stardew Valley" details

According to the official website of Xbox, "Stardew Valley" players will start with an overgrown plot of land, second-hand tools, and just a few coins for purchasing items. It is a country-life role playing video game, which lets players do anything they want with the land they have inherited in it and get to know the local inhabitants of the town.

Players can try out different methods of achieving success in this game. They can try out farming, mining, fishing, foraging, raising animals, and even fight monsters if needed. Making friends with the locals can also help them achieve the success they are looking for and they can even marry one of the locals and have children.
