That Terraria continues to receive ports to new systems is a testament to the game’s playability. It continues to attract new fans while prompting long-time players to double- and even triple-dip. I don’t think you need the Switch version if you’re already set up on your other gaming system(s) of preference (especially at the current price). If the Switch is your only option, however, it’s good enough for us to offer a recommendation. Let’s just hope the developers manage to dig up and build couch co-op before night falls again.

If you haven’t played Terraria, but are looking for an entry point that marries some mobile conveniences with the console experience, Terraria on the Nintendo Switch is a great place for you to begin your journey. The touch screen controls, while more challenging for precise building, add a positive dimension to the crafting and inventory management systems. While multiplayer support is limited to live services at launch, when you pair the aforementioned quality of life features with the tried-and-true gameplay experience that Terraria has developed over these past eight years, you have a winning formula.

Terraria is an entertainment experience that seems rather simple from screenshots alone, but hides a lot of charm underneath with literally dozens (or hundreds!) of hours well worth your time. The Nintendo Switch version has the potential to grant it new life, both on singleplayer and multiplayer, even if the actual building isn't as natural as one would expect.
