Stardew Valley Coming to PlayStation Vita Later this Month

Wednesday, 16 May, 2018

If the death knell of the PS Vita hadn't been sounded loud enough before, Sony just told the friar to climb the bell tower and ring it out once more.

This means that no more PS Vita physical games will be produced after March 2019. If it's anything like the Switch version, Stardew Valley on Vita will not tap into any of the handheld's special features like the touchpad.

While I definitely had a great time with my Vita, it's clear that the release of the juggernaut Nintendo Switch rectified so numerous Vita's missteps.

In Stardew Valley, you start with an overgrown plot of land, a few hand-me-down tools, and a small amount of money.

That multiplayer update is now in open beta testing on PC, and will head first to Nintendo Switch before spreading to PS4 and Xbox One later down the line. We'll have to wait and see what the Vita version has in store when it releases next week.

Being able to turn overgrown fields into the farm of your dreams and to always feel like you are part of a local community is a way to have a fun, on-the-go experience with a portable console like the PS Vita. The hardware manufacturer emailed game developers today to let them know that they "plan to end all Vita GameCard production by close of fiscal year 2018", in both Europe and America.
