Terraria has finally been given a release date on Switch. It’ll be out on the eShop starting June 27, Pipeworks Studios has announced.

Note that this week’s launch only applies to the digital version. A physical version is also in the works, but it will take a bit of additional time to release. We’ll let you know as soon as we have more information about the retail copy.



Pipeworks has offered the latest look at Terraria running on Switch with some new handheld footage. View the video below, which also showcases touch controls in action.


When Terraria eventually lands on Switch, it’ll arrive with some extensive touch support functionality. Developer Pipeworks outlined what it has in store for this in a forum post this week.

Here’s what players can expect:


Terraria is still in development for Switch, more than a couple of years after it was originally announced. As the wait continues, developer Pipeworks Studios shared a new look at the game running on Nintendo’s console. Check out the footage below.


It’s been a long wait for the Switch version of Terraria. Even though it was one of the first games confirmed for the system, it still has yet to be released. The good news is that things are finally starting to wrap up.

As detailed in an official update from the developer, an initial Nintendo submission process has been complete. Bugs are currently being ironed out, and thankfully, there aren’t too many of them. The only tasks left to complete are “the final polish” and “QA checks”.

European retailer shop4megastore has posted the boxart for Terraria on Switch. Have a look at the packaging image above.

A Switch version of the hit PC game in Terraria has been in development for quite some time – it was initially announced almost two years ago, even before the Switch’s launch. Since then, the game has been quietly pushed back several times; however, it seems like we might now actually be close to the game’s release. An official development update on the Switch version was shared on the official Terraria forums:

The team at Pipeworks is happy to announce that we’ve hit a major milestone in Switch development. Our alpha build has been submitted for review, which means major gameplay systems are in-game and ready for Re-Logic to check out. Pipeworks will be focused on our beta milestone now which means bug fixes, polish, and addressing other feedback from both 505 Games & Re-Logic.

Expect Switch livestreams, feature showcases, and other forms of content to start appearing in your feeds as we get closer to beta.

The team is thrilled at the state of our alpha build and we can’t wait to show you all the work that has been going on behind-the-scenes! It’ll be worth the wait.

A game entering its alpha version usually means that its release isn’t too far off. Hopefully we’ll hear more about Terraria’s Switch version soon.

We heard from Pipeworks Studio this week that Terraria is still in the works for Switch. Interestingly, a listing for the game has now appeared on Amazon Canada. That would seem to confirm that a physical version is happening similar to 3DS and Wii U.

As for an estimated release window, Amazon Canada sadly doesn’t provide anything new there. The retailer merely lists an obviously placeholder of December 31.

Terraria was originally intended for release on Switch sometime in 2017. We’re without a release date, but perhaps Amazon Canada’s listing is a sign that we could be seeing it sooner rather than later.
