In a somewhat surprising announcement, Re-Logic announced on the Terraria forums that their super popular game is out on Nintendo Switch in two days. The port has been in development for a while now. In the forum post, the devs noted that “since the game is done, (they) figured (they) would just get it in your hands as soon as possible.” I’m sure Terrarians everywhere are glad for the news.
The port is being handled by Pipeworks Studios. They also did the ports for PS4 and Xbox One, so the game is in good hands. This release does come at an interesting time for Re-Logic. In addition to whatever assistance they’re providing to the Switch port, they continue to work toward ending development on their hit indie.
As announced a few weeks ago, Terraria: Journey’s End will be the final content update for the game. The update adds over 800 new items to collect along with numerous quality of life updates that should improve the experience for everyone. The enhanced world generation and new bestiary are particularly exciting for long-time fans. The update even adds a new golf mini-game.
Journey’s End is tentatively scheduled for a 2019 release. However, the team has made it clear that the update will be out “when it’s ready”. I’ll be interested to see how quickly this new Switch version gets that update after it comes out on PC. Hopefully, the wait is very short.
Terraria will be out on Nintendo Switch on June 27. The game is currently available on pretty much everything else at this point.

Terraria was first released in 2011. The game has gone through countless updates and patches since then, but at E3 the team at Re-Logic revealed that the next major update will likely be their last. Titled Terraria: Journey’s End, this update will touch almost every aspect of the game and put everything in a place the devs are happy with. Watch the short trailer below.
Journey’s End has tons of content. There will be over 800 new items for you to play or craft. The team has also added a bunch of new foes to battle and challenges to tackle. And, of course, conquering those will provide you with quite the loot haul.
Re-Logic is also completely reworking its world generation. This includes sprucing up the world diversity with a number of mini-biomes for you to explore. Those biomes will be full of monsters that you can read about in the game’s new Bestiary. This in-game data log will track key stats on every monster along with what they can potentially drop.
Journey’s End introduces Block Swapping, the Void Vault, Expert Mode, enhanced weather effects, and golf. That’s right, golf! This update really does have everything. And the team is not planning to reveal all that’s coming just yet. Instead, they hope to keep some things a secret up through release. That said, if you want to get a better idea of everything coming, make sure to visit the game’s info page.
Terraria: Journey’s End is coming to PC this year (hopefully). The team is aiming for a 2019 release but will put the game out “when it’s ready”. The update will be coming to all other platforms at a later date. Keep your eyes on DualShockers for all the news coming out of E3.
