Following on from our previous article stating that Stardew Valley on the Nintendo switch has been approved, the game now has a release date and a price, much to the jubilation of Switch fans everywhere.

On Monday, developer Eric Barone announced that Stardew Valley will be available on the Switch eShop from Thursday, October 5th for $14.99 (£11.29).

The Switch version of the game is the first portable console port and will also be the first console version to receive the multiplayer update, set to launch in 2018.

Stardew Valley is one of several high-profile indie game releases coming to the Switch in the coming weeks and months. During the Nindie Summer Showcase back in August, Nintendo showed off a range of upcoming indie titles, including Super Meat Boy ForeverShovel Knight: King of Cards and No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again. That’s just a small sampling of the deluge of indie games on the way to Switch through 2017 and into 2018.
