After a long year of rumors and speculations, the open world action-adventure sandbox title Terraria is finally confirmed to be heading for the Wii U.
Developer 505 Games is handling the development, as was revealed by a listing recently made by Europe’s PEGI software rating system. Even though the game has been listed for Nintendo’s console, 505 Games has yet to make an official announcement regarding it. After such a long wait, an announcement would ease worrying fans that this listing was not an error on PEGI’s part.
Rumors of a Wii U version of Terraria began in January 2014, when online video game rental service GameFly listed the game for not only the Wii U, but also the Nintendo 3DS. Three days later, Terraria pre-orders popped up on Amazon form both platforms.
505 Games has been responsible for porting Terraria to a number of consoles. The game was previously released on several platforms including PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows.
In related news, Terraria: Otherworld was announced last month by the developers; and was tagged as an “innovating and unique” sandbox experience. Set in an alternate dimension within the same Terraria universe, players are tasked with restoring a shattered world that is now “overrun by a malevolent force that has corrupted nature itself.” The game is in development for the PC, with no release date currently in sight.
