While Eric Barone and Chucklefish has been hard at work creating additional ports of Stardew Valley, along with new content, the multiplayer update has been particularly troublesome to finish. It was released on Steam a while back, with a Switch version soon to follow, and now it has a release date on Nintendo's console.

This was revealed via a new developer's blog, and it's good news, as the update will launch on Nintendo Switch tomorrow, December 12. This will happen at the same time in North America, Europe, and Japan through the eShop.

The update allows up to four players to play cooperatively online or locally, and have their own cabin on the grounds of one shared farm. Working together is encouraged, but not required, as each player has their own personal relationships, skills, recipes, and the like.

On Switch you can communicate with others either via a new chat box - with almost 200 custom emojis - or via Switch online voice chat. You can even play via local communications, with 2-4 consoles able to connect to play over a short distance without needing a Switch Online account.

Now the next task at hand is launching the update on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but we don't know when that might arrive, although we do know that Sickhead Games will be helping with that.

Will you be farming with friends this week?

REVIEW. Written by Clover Harker

"Even though Stardew Valley merges many themes together, it has been done seamlessly."
