Stardew Valley

ConcernedApe has announced that the long-awaited multiplayer update for Stardew Valley arrives on Switch this week. Version 1.3 will be live on December 12.

When playing with others, Stardew Valley will support online voice chat as well as a new chat box feature that has colored text and close to 200 custom emojis. It’s also possible for 2-4 Switch consoles to connect via local wireless and play together over a short distance without the need for a Nintendo Switch Online account.

The multiplayer update for Stardew Valley is one step closer to landing on Switch. Today, Chucklefish confirmed that it’s now in submission.

At the start of October, it was announced that the big update was in the QA phase. Once it’s been approved by Nintendo, it’ll be ready for release. We could be seeing it before the year ends, but early 2019 is also a possibility.

Stardew Valley hasn’t seen a retail release in the west, but in Japan, something special is in the works. Publisher Oizumi Amuzio announced today that a collector’s edition is happening.

Aside from the game itself, a special box along with three bonus items will be included. Fans will be given the original soundtrack, a map of Pelican Town, and a beginner’s guidebook.

Stardew Valley’s Japanese collector’s edition goes on sale starting January 31. Pricing is set at 3,500 yen.

While fans have been eagerly awaiting the big multiplayer update for Stardew Valley on Switch since it was last mentioned two months ago, developer ConcernedApe has given insight into the situation that indicates that the patch might be dropping somewhat soon.

Today, ConcernedApe took to Twitter to confirm that the update in question has been submitted to Nintendo for QA. If everything goes smoothly, this should open the door to the announcement of a concrete release date in the near future.

ConcernedApe published a trailer for the upcoming multiplayer update in Stardew Valley. Take a look at the video below.

No word yet on when Stardew Valley multiplayer is Switch bound, but we’re one step closer since the PC, Mac, and Linux versions were given a date of August 1. It’ll be on Switch “soon”.

Stardew Valley made significant strides with multiplayer this week. While the major feature isn’t ready for Switch yet, a beta version was finally widely released on Steam. Publisher Chucklefish showed off some extensive footage on Twitch today, and you can watch the full recording below.

ConcernedApe provided the latest status update for Stardew Valley’s multiplayer update today. Currently, the developer is sorting out bugs. If all goes well, it could be wrapped up in about a month.

It’s not immediately clear when Stardew Valley’s multiplayer update will be available on Switch, but the point is that we should be seeing it sooner rather than later. We’ll continue to share news about the patch as we have it.

ResetERA recently sent some questions to Chucklefish. Technical director Rodrigo Monteiro, programmer Tom Coxon, and CEO / designer Finn Brice were asked about a wide variety of topics, many of which were Nintendo-related. The team discussed Pocket Rumble’s delay, why Stardew Valley doesn’t have touch controls on Switch, cross-platform play for Wargroove, future support, and the possibility of Starbound on Nintendo’s console.
