Late September- Early October. My gut has a feeling.

Edit: Perfect for comfy holidays.

If people want a physical edition of this on Switch it sounds like you might want to let the devs know.

They seem on the fence it appears.

This sounds messy

It will be the publisher's first Nintendo console port, I believe, and after vastly underestimating the time it would take to complete their first game (Starbound) by a couple years it sounds more cautious to me.

You sure mean their first Nintendo console port.

I noticed a few indies that have retail releases on other systems aren't getting one on Switch. The Escapists 2 by Team17 being one example. Now's the time to get that changed on Switch with it being the hot thing right now. People want to see new games in stores they can buy!

Surely Team17's not dumb enough to decide against one for Yooka-Laylee on Switch, SURELY?!

This and Hollow Knight are killing me knowing I could play them on PC right now, but also know I will enjoy them much more on the Switch. Can't come soon enough, but luckily there's D2 to distract.

Also secret hope that Ruiner eventually makes its way onto the system.

LOL I'm in the same boat. I think the wait is even worse KNOWING I could play it right now - but it's gonna be SO GOOD on the Switch!

I just hope it comes out, everything theyve said so far has been "maybe sooner or later"

Oh, it's definitely coming. The head of Chucklefish tweeted a picture of it running on Switch just a week or two ago, so they're in the testing phase at this point.

Not at all. They just don't want fans complaining if the game gets delayed. Look at any recent delays: Crackdown, Uncharted 4, GT Sport, etc.

It's a smart thing to do.

I've held off on getting the PC version and now that I have a Switch is seems like a perfect pairing. Not sure why something equally of a no-brainer like Animal Crossing is MIA. Hopefully it's out in September.

Patiently waiting to double dip (already have it on PC). This is supposed to be the co-op debut on console too, I think, so they can take their time.

Sounds like great news.

Better than shit devs (NBA Playgrounds) that throw a game on the eShop, get sales then fix it's flaws waaaaaaaaaay later.

You have to keep in mind too guys, the dev is still working on releasing Wargroove too, across many platforms, including the Switch.

Really hoping for a Physical version on Switch. Even if it comes later I'd probably pick it up, but was really hoping for a Physical release at the same time as digital.

This sucks, but I guess wait, we shall. It sucks so much because I could have bought this by now on PS4 or PC, even though it FEELS like it would be at home on Switch.

Luckily there's three great titles launching next week. Bummer that it was marketed with a "summer" date. While it can still be launched in summer, most people aren't thinking September (or later) when summer is mentioned.

I hope the eventual release date is revealed VERY close to release.

As a publisher, not dev of Stardew Valley.
They're also bringing Pocket Rumble to Switch.

It's got to be super close. That's what the very soon hints feel like. I have a feeling in a few weeks we'll get an announcement with it popping up on the eshop shortly after.

Isn't this the dev/publisher who was supposed to bring Pocket Rumble to Switch in March then kept delaying it?

They are publishing the game, but the delay is because the developer is not only actively working on the game, but working around issues with the online side of the game.

Chucklefish publish a lot of indie games. They also have some in house dev people to help with projects that get big.

Stardew Valley was essentially 1 dude. Now it's a huge game with tons of patches on a variety of systems. So they provide support.

I wish more devs adhered to this party line. Hell, I would welcome reading about it stealth launching during my morning coffee. Pre-launch pre-order marketing hype culture is a cancer on modern gaming.
