The wait for Stardew Valley’s promised multiplayer mode has been longer than most initially expected, but the good news is that it’s actually coming — and soon. PC is slated to get it first, but the surprise revealed today is which of the console editions will be next in line. Oddly enough, that honor will go to the the brand-new Nintendo Switch.

“Just to clarify: the Switch Stardew Valley multiplayer announcement DOES NOT mean that PC will get multiplayer later,” the game’s developer said on Twitter. “PC will still be first.”
Stardew Valley just celebrated its first anniversary this past weekend. The team talked about various accomplishments over the past year, including localization in additional languages and ports to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
