Stardew Valley to Debut on Nintendo Switch on October 5

After a litany of hoops that Chucklefish had to go through to get their surprise hit, Stardew Valley, on the Nintendo Switch, the company now has a release date and a price for the game.

Stardew Valley will make its way to Nintendo Switch this Thursday, for $14.99 in the eShop.

In Stardew Valley, the player takes the role of a character that, to get away from the hustle of an office job, takes over their grandfather’s dilapidated farm in a place known as Stardew Valley. The player manages their character’s time and energy levels as they clear land, plant and tend crops, raise livestock, craft goods, mine for ores, and engage in social activities, including romances leading towards marriage, with the various residents of the small town, all while earning in-game money to expand their farm. The game is open-ended, allowing the player to take on activities as they see fit.
