#Stardew Valley” has become one of the most popular farming simulators since it released last year for the PC. #Nintendo previously revealed that the indie game would be ported over to the Switch, but the developers have been fairly quiet about it over the past few months. Luckily, they have some new updates about the Switch version, and it seems like things are going well.

Approved by Nintendo

According to Nintendo Insider, developer Chucklefish had sent in “Stardew Valley” to Nintendo for an “extensive testing phase.” Many fans were anxious to know the results if the game passed the company’s standards, and now the developers have delivered the good news.

Chucklefish CEO Funn Brice recently took to Twitter to reveal that the game has been finally approved by Nintendo. With that out of the way, they’re working with “all parties involved” to finalize a #Release Date for the hybrid console.

During its initial teaser trailer, Nintendo claimed that “Stardew Valley” would have been released this summer. While Chucklefish didn’t manage to pull through, it seems like they’re doing everything they can to release the game as soon as possible. The CEO previously explained the development process on Reddit, stating that there’s a lot of work when it comes to checking for bugs and potential updates. Since Nintendo has already approved the title, it probably won’t be too long now before players can start farming on the Switch.
