Lead developer confirms that Terraria is heading to 3DS and Wii U
Dig for victory
A couple of days ago Amazon.com listed 2D sandbox-crafter Terraria for 3DS. It even has a price of $29.99 and a release date of October 31st.
But Amazon has upcoming listings for games such as this one quite often and they sometimes turn out to be wrong. Except this time it isn't.
Over in the official Terraria forums, Re-Logic lead developer Cenx confirmed that the game would be heading to Nintendo platforms.
"Terraria is indeed coming to Wii U and 3DS," she wrote.
This news isn't too much of a surprise considering that Terraria is already available on PC, mobile, and most other consoles, but it's a good to hear at least.
What hasn't been confirmed yet is the price and release date that Amazon listed. So hold fire on getting excited about those details for now.
We gave Terraria a Bronze Award in our review of the mobile version, saying that its "mix of creative crafting and endless exploration will keep you rapt for weeks."
We weren't so enthused by its wonky touchscreen controls and lack of multiplayer. But these criticisms will hopefully not apply to the 3DS version.Destructoid
