Hello Terrarians!

2D_Terraria-WiiU_PEGI small.jpg

The Terraria Wii U digital version is available starting today in EU, with the US version to launch digitally on June 16th.

Europe Store Page (UK)
US Wii U Store Page

As you may have seen previously, we expect the retail copies to be available on June 24th in Europe and June 28th in North America (if you are interested in picking up a physical copy).

We hope that everyone really enjoys the Terraria experience on Wii U - we think it is pretty awesome ourselves!


In addition to the Wii U news, we are also pleased to announce that the long-awaited latest console update is live today for Playstation devices (PS3, PS4, and Vita)! You should be seeing it soon, if you haven't already. Below you will find the new content and a list of bugs that were fixed. Some of the bugs are specific to Xbox One and 360, those will take affect within the next couple of weeks.

The Xbox One and 360 updates (with the same content and fixes) are still in submission with Microsoft and we will update you here, as soon as we are made aware of an approval/launch date.

Remember, you can report bugs here.


*Note* This list contains bugs that have been addressed, not the fix/change. For example, "Acorns will not grow on sand when planted" is the bug, so Acorns will now grow on sand, since it has been fixed.

I experienced the "music stopping" bug once, early on while I was seeking out the Stylist.

Also, some of my wiring connecting acuators to switches vanished, and had to be replaced.

Other than that (and the savage Nerfing of the Spectre Hood), I'm enjoying myself.


well i had a feeling that the update would come earlier because of the WiiU digital release & im glad it did thanks guys :D Now to sit & wait patiently for 1.3.


Yay! no more Specific combinations of walls, blocks and objects causing corruption to spread in the world for client users!

Seriously though, awesome new changes, can't wait 'till I get a chance to try them out (this weekend hopefully)!

Woohoo!! Sony players sure are lucky! Don't forget to back up your saves before updating ^_^ Microsoft systems will follow shortly I'm sure :)

what do you mean by updating Splash screen? Idk what the splash screen is.
Pretty sure they mean the screen before the title screen. Where you press start to get to the title screen. :)
Is 1.3 on console it doesn't say?
  • Is 1.3 on console it doesn't say?:pumpking::rslime::pumpking::rslime:
Not yet, no. This is the update to bring consoles fully up to PC version :) I'm sure there will be news about 1.3 in the near-ish future though :)
