The highly recommended farming simulation game Stardew Valley finally has a release date of March 14 on Android. This comes five months after its release on iOS and three years after its original release on PC. It’s available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store, so you can be notified when the game is finally released. The price of the game in the US is reportedly $8, which converts to roughly Rs. 570. We can expect a similar price on the Indian Google Play Store as well.
Stardew Valley takes a page out of the popular farming simulation franchise ‘Harvest Moon’, where you escape from the city life to inherit a dilapidated farm. From there it’s fairly open ended with what you want to do with your time. You can grow crops, raise livestock, mine for ores, or even build an active social life.
The game was originally released on Windows, but was ported to other OS’ and all current generation of gaming consoles including PS4, Xbox One and quite notably on the Nintendo Switch, where it quickly became the preferred platform to play Stardew Valley. Its last release was on iOS late last year. Stardew Valley also received a new multiplayer feature, but that has not been added to the mobile platforms just yet.
On mobile however there have been additions of other new features like save anywhere, pinch and zoom, and also a virtual joystick.
Engadget has reported that the game will be priced at $8 when it launches on Android on March 14.
