    Very much excited to have this in my office here. :)
  3. When you see Terraria on the Switch beating Minecraft (one of my favourites) and Cadence of Hyrule (Crossover of one of my favourite franchises, Zelda, with Crypt of the Necrodancer), because it was an instant hit.

    This is awesome.... but when is the patch projected to come out because the switch version is so buggy. I love terraria and have spent countless hours on it between PC, ps4, and XBOX... but the switch version is dismal compared to the other platforms. These corrupt world BS errors make me want to ask for a refund :/ but I know yall will fix it.... hopefully soon though

    Cadence of Hyrule seems to be doing very well since Crypt of the Necrodancer, with Crypt being a game I dearly enjoy, but will Terraria take over Cadence’s throne of the 2nd-place spot for best-selling download-only games? Only time will tell! ~:)

    Question: If I buy a cartridge from Germany, will it only have German language in game or is it the same as all EU carts with English and other EU languages or it matches your system language? I will be travelling to Germany at release date so I might buy it from there.

    Terraria is a great game even can get Top5 in my game life, but I feel terraria's team is so indifference to asia players.

    The other game like MINECRAFT,Moonlighter or the other games,they all have main language in asia like Chinese and Japanese,why terraria don't?Terraria is no release in Japan e-shop,even the Japanese veriso on PS4 is not have 1.3 update this time

    I am so love this game ,please can you give more attention to asia player?

    Just got it. It looks great so far! I know that this game will probably be the Switch game I will have the most hours on. Ever. Btw it leaves me to wonder, What if you could use motion controls? That would be siiiiiiiiiick. (But impractical)

    Patch is at Nintendo, including fixes for "Settling Liquids" and the Item Frame/Target Dummy world load fails. Just have to wait on them to review and approve it.

    Beware the Switch edition is being développed by 505 Games. This studio hasn’t published an update in 2 years on the Apple store. Terraria falls to the 16th position because of this while it deserves to be top 5. On the opposite, Mojang handles it’s own game and beats the 1st position. ReLogic you are doing it wrong giving your game to lazy asses. Needless to say I’m not gonna buy and probably the reason many aren’t gonna support you multi platform. ReLogic just care about the PC version. Terraria is a multi platform failure because of this. To much disparity between the different versions available while Minecraft is unique and the pocket edition is now the most popular version.

    Why does it release earlier in other countries if Re-Logic is an American Company?

    I believe that this is a typical business move for a company to first release a new product to other countries that are not the business’ home country, then after the new product has set its roots to the outside world, then local releases will then happen! ~:)
