Stardew Valley Console Multiplayer Will Be on the Nintendo Switch First

Since Stardew Valley was released, fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of its multiplayer mode. Now, more than a year after the game’s initial release, multiplayer is headed to consoles and PCs. Surprisingly, the multiplayer functionality will be making its console debut on the Nintendo Switch. During Nintendo’s “Nindies Showcase” presentation (which can be viewed on Nintendo.com) the company announced that Stardew Valley multiplayer will be debuting on the Switch this summer.

Night Dive has added a new gameplay mode called “Last Turok Standing,” which, according to a press release, will let players “battle with friends for an even more visceral gaming experience.” It sounds like a pretty standard deathmatch, but its addition is a welcome one for anybody who’s ever wanted to use Turok‘s assortment of sci-fi guns on their friends (digitally, of course).
