505 Games posted an update on the official Terraria forums about the upcoming Wii U release as well as the already-released 3DS edition.

On Wii U, as we already know, the disc version is planned for June 28 in North America and June 26 in Europe. It’ll apparently be up on the eShop June 16 – a week later than was has been shown on the European store. There will be a day one patch that comes in at about 50MB.

505 Games also had this to say about having Wii U in line with the other console versions:

On Wii U, Terraria will be heading to retail in late June. But it seems that the eShop launch will be taking place a bit sooner.

A listing on the eShop pins down Terraria’s digital release in Europe for June 9. There’s a decent chance that Terraria will also be put up on the North American eShop at around the same time.


Terraria’s 1.0.2 update is ready to launch… in Europe that is. If you’re a European reader, it should be out today. The same patch will be coming to North America soon, but will require a bit of extra time.

The new Terraria update adds some new content, makes improvements, and fixes bugs. The full patch notes are located here.


Terraria will be coming to Wii U on June 28 in North America and June 24 in Europe, 505 Games and creator-developer Andrew Spinks’ Re-Logic have announced.

For those who haven’t heard about it previously, Terraria is a side-scrolling action-adventure that involves crafting items, exploring worlds and battling enemies. The title features a traditional 2D combat system with expansive crafting mechanics and randomly generated pixel worlds.

On Wii U, the team is including “intuitive touchscreen controls to allow players easy access to the world of Terraria, as well as several multiplayer options such as four-player local split-screen co-op and eight-player online multiplayer.” Additionally, it will be possible to post achievements on Miiverse leaderboards to track progress.

Here’s a rundown of other features in the game:

• 14 different environments such as eerie dungeons, slippery ice wastes, wild jungles and more;
• Hundreds of craftable weapons, armor and items;
• More than 150 enemies ranging from zombies to armies of goblins;
• Epic boss battles that test players’ combat skills;
• Vast worlds of exploration that introduce new potions, magic, gear and more.

505 Games took to the official Terraria forums recently and provided an update about the game on both Wii U and 3DS.

The next Terraria console update is wrapping up, and could be ready around May. It’s expected that the 3DS patch will drop at around the same time. As for what the update entails, 505 Games noted the following:

3DS Update: will likely hit at a similar time frame as the console timing above. We have not shared what all we are including for this one – but the plan is for this to cover fixes to the most pressing issues as well as bringing the first post-launch new content to the 3DS version of Terraria! We will share more details at a later date.

There’s also some news about Terraria for Wii U. It sounds like this version of the game could come out at the end of May digitally (followed by the retail version).
