Update, February 26, 2019 (12:45 PM ET): It’s been months since Stardew Valley arrived for iOS, but it’s now almost here on Android. In a tweet from the game’s developer, it has been revealed that the title will be available to download from the Google Play Store on Thursday, March 14, 2019.
The game’s developer, Eric Barone, earlier affirmed this would be the full version of Stardew Valley up to version 1.3 (minus multiplayer).
The title will cost $7.99 on Android, like on iOS, and you can transfer saved PC data so you don’t have to begin a new game. The supported languages at launch will be English, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, French, Korean, and Turkish.

Original Article, October 10, 2018 (03:01 AM ET): Stardew Valley is one of the most popular indie titles in recent memory, considered by many to be a spiritual successor to the Harvest Moon series. We’re a little surprised it isn’t available on mobile though, but you won’t have to wait too long to farm on your smartphone.
The game will land on iOS on October 24, according to a blog post by developer Eric Barone (h/t: Polygon). Stardew Valley will also arrive on Android, Barone confirmed, but there’s no exact launch date just yet.
The developer says this is indeed the full game (with content up to version 1.3), albeit with touch controls and touch-focused tweaks (e.g. new UI). Unfortunately, mod support and multiplayer content aren’t available in the mobile version.
The developer adds that the iOS version will be available for $7.99 and won’t offer in-app purchases. It’s unclear whether the Android version will take the same approach or deliver a free-to-play solution.
Barone also says iOS players can transfer their PC saves to mobile via iTunes — hopefully Android players can transfer their saves too.
News of a mobile release means you can soon play Stardew Valley practically anywhere. The game was originally released on PC in 2016, making its way to Xbox One and PS4 shortly thereafter. It’s since landed on PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Switch. Now, about a Dreamcast release…
