Indie Hit Terraria Making Its Way To Consoles

Today, we’ve learned that 505 Games, the publisher who brought Terraria to us, is planning on bringing the title to Xbox LIVE Arcade and PSN. PC gamers might recall when Terraria first arrived on the scene in 2011. This side-scrolling action-adventure title combined the fun of crafting and exploration with the limits of one’s own imagination. Since it’s release, indie developer Relogic’s 2D title has been a huge hit and garnered universal acclaim from critics and gamers alike.

Tim Woodley, Head of Global Brand for 505 Games, remarks:

“The block-building genre has taken the world by storm and Terraria has garnered a massive following through its increased focus on adventure and discovery. We’re looking forward to bringing an already hugely successful experience to a brand new console audience and we can’t wait for the existing Terraria fan base to experience all-new content.”

Terraria creator, Andrew Spinks, had this to add:

“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! It’s been awesome working with 505 Games, and I can’t wait for everyone to see the additional features that they’ve been able to bring to this new edition of the game.”

This news is sure to result in mixed reactions but I really feel that Terraria has the potential to be one of the best games available via XBLA and PSN next year. Stay tuned with us as we keep you updated.
