Terraria, the Minecraft-inspired 2D side-scroller that sold over 1.6 million copies in 2011, is heading straight for the XBLA and PSN!
The planned release date is said to be in early 2013, which will bring with it some brand new content! Whether or not this new content will be also released for the PC version is unknown, but unfortunately, remembering that Andrew ‘Redigit’ Sprinks, the one man band behind the PC version, announced that there would be no more updates back in February, seems unlikely.
The console ports are being published by 505 Games, and developed by Engine Software, with what appears to be no involvement from Sprinks, however he does seem to be ecstatic about the news!
“I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, 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!”
