    Hello Terrarians!

    Yesterday, we confirmed that Terraria will be launching on Nintendo Switch in 2017. We are very excited to open up Terraria to new users and to be part of the great group of 'Nindies' coming to Nintendo Switch! We've received a lot of questions, and can confirm that, at launch Terraria for Switch will be at least version 1.3. We'll share more details later down the road, but couldn't wait to let everyone know, Terraria will be on Switch!



    Our friends at Pipeworks Studio are still hard at work on 1.3 for console and mobile. And, we are still on track to launch 1.3 on PS4 and Xbox One during Q2 this year :) To further get you excited about Terraria on Switch - and for the big updates coming to PS4/XB1 and Mobile later this year, we thought we would give you a sneak peek at our new in-progress Console box art revamp, hand drawn by Re-Logic's very own @Crowno!



    As always, THANKS for your support! We're looking forward to some great things, so stay tuned :)

    That art is....in a word - amazing. 11/10 Crowno, you have outdone yourself.

    Excited to finally be able to confirm the Switch news as well. :cool:

    It looks good :) Please make sure this version has all its key features (unlike the 3DS) such as online multiplayer and world sizes!

    Art is incredible. But i don't get, why Silver armor so popular, lol.

    I'm very excited! The 3DS version was (and still is) awesome to play, so I can't even begin to imagine what this will be like. Keep it up! :D

    The touchscreen in portable mode will be amazing for inventory managment (If the touchscreen will be usable in this version)

    Man, i'm loving the Silver Armor there! :passionate:

    That's truly some incredible box art just to stare at. Both the forest and corruption are amazingly done in detail :D

    As for the Switch. It's incredible news. Hoping for it to also play more comfortable as I heard that there was some lost potential use for the Touchscreen on the Wii U.

    That's pretty good news! However...
    1.3 for console is planned for Q2 2017, but the switch will release on March 11th. Doesn't it seem a little weird to release this, like, inches away from the 1.3 update?

    They didn't say it was coming to Switch at launch. It will come a bit later in the year - PS4/XB1 will be first.

    I just can`t grasp the true awesomeness of the box art :eek::D

    The Switch'll be able to handle a lot more than the 3DS can. Gonna be full 1.3!
