Stardew Valley” is one of the most popular farming games in the gaming industry at the moment. Despite releasing early last year, Chucklefish has been porting the game over to other consoles. It already launched on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the Nintendo Switch version just released on the eShop. That said, the game has a few issues on the hybrid console, but the developers are already working on a Patch for it.

Upcoming patch

Taking to the official “Stardew Valley” website, Chucklefish announced that they will be releasing the game’s first patch soon.

While the game is pretty seamless, it has a few technical hiccups here and there. The patch aims to fix to audio crackling noise that plays on the Switch’s left speaker. You can still fix this issue now by just restarting the game, but it’s good to know that they’re working on a proper fix.

The update will also fix the bug where players can’t select certain items in the crafting menu. Sometimes the items at the bottom of the page can’t be selected, making it frustrating if you need to start a campfire or make some snacks. Moreover, they’ll also be fixing some control scheme problems with the “Journey of the Prairie King” minigame. Finally, the patch will also fix the crashes that happen when opening the journal.

There’s still no word when these changes will get patched in, but the Chucklefish spokesperson claimed that they’re already working on it. You can buy “Stardew Valley” now on the Nintendo Switch.


Chucklefish is also working on the game’s multiplayer functions. They’ll be releasing a beta for the PC later this year.

If all goes well, they might be able to launch the multiplayer features early next year. You can play with up to three other friends who can help you on your farm. Aside from tilling the fields, they can do almost anything else the host can do – including participating in events and even marrying villagers.

Chucklefish is also trying to work on a player-to-player marriage system, but they’ve yet to reveal the finer details about this mechanic.

These multiplayer features are slated to arrive first on the PC and consoles at a later date – starting with the Nintendo Switch.

“Stardew Valley” is a farming simulator game where you play as yourself and inherit your late grandfather’s farm. There, you start a new life by living off the land. You can also mingle with the various townsfolk and settle down with one of the bachelor/bachelorettes.
