Stardew Valley‘s 1.5 upgrade thrilled a great deal of us when it came out for PC in December, and now it’s lastly arriving for consoles. The video game’s designer revealed on Twitter that the update should be presenting to Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation “within the next number of hours.” As of this writing, it is already readily available on the Nintendo Change.
The most significant function in the update is regional, split-screen co-op play, which appears absolutely ideal for consoles.
The update also includes a new Advanced Options menu, brand-new buildings, animals, and enemies, and naturally a crop of bug repairs.

The full changelog is offered on Stardew Valley‘s website, and you can check out it yourself to see which changes delight you– we’re hyped for chairs that you can in fact sit on, a menu tab that informs you if you have actually talked with somebody that in-game day, and a completely new region with its own mission and characters.
When we initially covered this update, we called Stardew Valley our “forever video game,” because a lot of us keep returning to play it every time it’s upgraded. Regardless of the game’s appeal (it’s offered over 10 million copies), it still seems like a very personal project– similar to my farm in the video game, though I’ll admit that’s a bit less excellent.
