Terraria coming to consoles early 2013
Pricing yet to be determined.
Indie mega hit on Steam Terraria will be available on the consoles soon, publisher 505 Games has announced. The game was released in 2011 and went on to sell a humongous number of copies on Steam and it was also a part of the Humble Indie Bundle.
The game is set to release early next year on the PSN and XBL. It will probably be priced at $10 or 800 MSP, considering it’s that much on Steam right now. It’s a 2D side-scroller and has sold 1.6 million units so far.
“The block-building genre has taken the world by storm and Terraria has garnered a massive following through its increased focus on adventure and discovery.” said Tim Woodley, Head of Global Brand for 505 Games.
“We’re looking forward to bringing an already hugely successful experience to a brand new console audience and we can’t wait for the existing Terraria fan base to experience all-new content”.
Andrew Spinks, creator of Terraria added “I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation3! To see it come so far is a complete shock, especially after such humble beginnings. It’s always been my dream to have as many people as possible know and enjoy Terraria as much as I have, and this is another big step in that direction! It’s been awesome working with 505 Games, and I can’t wait for everyone to see the additional features that they’ve been able to bring to this new edition of the game.”
In India Origin Games distributes 505 Games so if there is a retail release it could be available in the country, but I doubt it.
