Stardew Valley, a low-key farming/life simulator, has been a success on multiple platforms including PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Now Switch owners have a firm release date of October 5, and the game will probably excel there, too.
The good news comes from developer ConcernedApe, who tweeted the announcement this morning:
Stardew Valley will be released on Nintendo Switch this Thursday, October 5th! https://t.co/O84FsPzScy

Though we've known for a while that the Switch version is coming, the release date has been vague until now.
To have the announcement and release be so close together is a great surprise. Stardew Valley seems like a perfect fit for the Switch, and gamers can expect to invest dozens of hours in this charming and addictive sim. Plus, with recent releases like Golf Story and Steamworld Dig 2, the Switch's library has recently been getting a nice dose of retro charm.
