ConcernedApe is currently hard at work on a multiplayer feature for Stardew Valley that will be added in a future update. Additionally, something else is planned that will also be impact single-player.

ConcernedApe teased on Twitter:

The tease above is all we have to go on at the moment. Hopefully we’ll have more news to share in the weeks ahead.


Stardew Valley’s Switch patch is coming closer to release. It’s been submitted, meaning it shouldn’t be too long until the patch makes it out to players.

One interesting thing included with the update is video capture. We didn’t know about this previously, but Chucklefish has confirmed that you’ll be able to record gameplay clips similar to Super Mario Odyssey once the patch is released.


An official post on Chucklefish’s forums for Stardew Valley has a status update about the upcoming Switch patch.

Last month, the company highlighted various issues that have been reported. Everything listed as “In Develop” below has been fixed. The update is in QA testing currently, but an exact date for the update’s release has yet to be determined.

Also, one of the things being addressed is saving times. A comparison video showing how this has been improved can be found below, along with the entire status update for the patch.

Stardew Valley creator ConcernedApe held a Reddit AMA yesterday. It was an opportunity for fans to ask all sorts of questions about the game, which just launched on Switch last week.

Some of the responses were pretty interesting. It sounds like a physical version might be possible on Switch, and the somewhat long save times are being looked too. Unfortunately, touchscreen support is unlikely. ConcernedApe also talked vaguely about future plans, including his next game.

Here’s a roundup of the more interesting responses:

Stardew Valley finally launched on Switch yesterday. It seems to be going over well, but players have encountered a few issues.

Fortunately, Chucklefish is already planning a patch. The full details regarding what will be addressed can be found below.

GameXplain just wrapped up a live stream in which the Switch version of Stardew Valley was showcased. View the full archive below containing an hour of footage.

Stardew Valley finally has a release date on Switch. Announced today, the game arrives on the eShop later this week. Chucklefish will be handling publishing on October 5.

Nintendo quickly followed up on the news by adding a listing for Stardew Valley to the eShop in Europe. Thanks to that, we now know how much space it’ll take up. Stardew Valley requires 880MB on Switch.

We’ve also included a trailer for Stardew Valley below. It seems to be the original launch trailer but with Switch branding. We imagine some of you may have never seen it though, and it’ll get you ready for this week’s release.

Stardew Valley is coming to Switch on October 5, Chucklefish and ConcernedApe have announced. The news applies to both North America and Europe.

Pricing for Stardew Valley will be set at $14.99.

Here’s the news straight from ConcernedApe:

A new blog post hit the official Stardew Valley site explaining what’s in store for multiplayer. As was announced earlier this year, Switch will be the first console to be receiving the new functionality.

When you begin Stardew Valley, you’ll be able to build up to three cabins on your farm that can be inhabited by a farmhand controlled by friends. Farmhands can farm, mine, fight, fish, forage, marry NPCs, and take part in festivals. Players will also have separate inventories. When a friend isn’t online, inventory management is done through a chest in their cabinet.

It also seems that player-to-player marriage will be possible. Rather than using the mermaid pendant, “an alternative method that requires a similar amount of effort to wooing an NPC” is planned instead.

The full post on multiplayer in Stardew Valley is below.

Stardew Valley will be coming to Switch sometime in the near future. When it’s ready, it could be getting a special physical edition. CDON, a Swedish retailer, is listing Stardew Valley Collector’s Edition for Switch.

505 Games published the Stardew Valley: Collector’s Edition on other platforms earlier this year. It features a copy of the game, a disc featuring the Collector’s Edition Soundtrack with 33 hand-picked tracks, fold-out map of Stardew Valley, and a Mini-Guidebook created by the artist and author of the full guidebook, Kari Fry.
