Acclaimed indie RPG Stardew Valley will make the jump to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One early next week, developer ConcernedApe has announced.
Word comes by way of PS Blog, revealing that the pixel art title will hit PS4 in North America first on December 13, before expanding to Europe – and Xbox One worldwide – on December 14. News of the long-anticipated console port bookends quite a remarkable year for Eric Barone and the team at ConcernedApe, after first releasing the Harvest Moon-esque farming simulator via PC back in February to near unanimous approval.

Now, ten months later – and after being nominated for Best Independent Game at The Game Awards 2016 last week – console owners will finally get to see what all the fuss is about. For the uninitiated, Stardew Valley is best described as a cutesy farming simulator in which you inherit “your grandfather’s old farm and move away from the city to start a new life on your own. Over time, you’ll gain new skills and learn to live off the land. You’ll make friends with the locals, learn their stories, and maybe even start a family with one of the 12 bachelors or bachelorettes. Stardew Valley gives you plenty of freedom to create the homestead of your dreams!”
So, there you have it; at long last, Stardew Valley‘s console release is locked in. Look for Barone’s delightful RPG to grace PS4 in North America first on December 13, before expanding to Europe – and Xbox One worldwide – on December 14. A Nintendo Switch port is also said to be in the cards for 2017.
