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.

Chucklefish held a live stream for Wargroove today and showed off the map editor in great detail. Find the full recording below.

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 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.

The Switch version of Stardew Valley has been hotly anticipated and every bit of news on it gets quite a lot of attention. Over the last few weeks, we’ve been getting ever close to the game’s release, with news that the game had been approved by Nintendo last week. This morning, Finn Brice, CEO of publisher Chucklefish, posted on Twitter that “the Stardew Valley news you’ve all been waiting for” would be coming later today. He didn’t explicitly say it, but it’s fairly obvious that he’s talking about the release date of the Switch version. We will of course keep you updated.


We may not have to wait much longer for Stardew Valley on Switch. The game has now been approved, and a release date is being finalized.

We have the official word from Chucklefish:
