Posted on April 26, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in 3DS, News

The next Terraria 3DS update is now in Nintendo’s hands for certification. The developers anticipate that the process will take a couple of weeks, and then a release date will be determined.

Terraria’s new update will implement some content, make improvements, and add bug fixes. This includes the addition of the Frost Moon event, increase of save slots and inventory slots, and more.

Head past the break for the full patch notes. We’ve also attached some screenshots below.


  • Frost Moon content added.
  • Save slots expanded from three to six.
  • 10 more inventory slots.
  • Auto equip removed.
  • “A” to interact now works relative to cursor position in Manual Aim.
  • Stack speed improved.
  • Quick stack ignores all hotbar items.
  • Buffs can now be cancelled on the Equip screen.
  • Save games refactored so the issue of long save times no longer occurs
  • Addressed a number of crashing-related issues
  • Items in the Trash stay there when you leave the UI screen, making it harder to accidentally trash a wanted item.
  • Players can sell items with no value to shops so you clean inventory quickly.
  • Dungeon Worldgen re-worked to provide properly expansive Dungeons
  • Spawn rates in dungeons rebalanced to fit a more authenitic threatening experience
  • Rules for surface fishing reworked, so you can fish much smaller ponds
  • Bosses now de-spawn 100% if you die – mirroring the PC version and adding challenge
  • Precision screen UI tweaked to add fishing items to left hand pane – tap to toggle
  • Player no longer glows like it’s wearing the Miner’s Helmet by default. Ore glow also toned down. It’s going to get dark out there guys…

Other Bugs Fixed with this Update:
