The Xbox One version of the charming farming/life sim Stardew Valley will be available in a matter of weeks.
Creator Eric Barone announced today that Stardew Valley launches for Xbox One on December 14. He shared the news in an Xbox Wire post, which might very well be the only time you'll see Animal Crossing get namechecked on that blog.
"I spent over four years developing Stardew Valley, inspired by games that I loved as a child such as Harvest Moon and Animal Crossing," he wrote. "Although the idea of a 'farming RPG' might have seemed odd at first, the games were very addictive and had a heartwarming charm that stuck with me. With Stardew Valley, my goal was to recreate that special feeling and bring it to modern platforms. Stardew Valley has been a great success on PC, and I am very excited to share it with many new people on Xbox One. I hope you'll enjoy your time in the valley!"
Indeed, Stardew Valley has proven to be extremely popular on PC, selling over 1 million copies in less than two months. Multiplayer support and consoles versions (for Xbox One, PS4, and Wii U) were confirmed not long after launch earlier this year. Release dates for those consoles haven't been shared yet.
