505 games, Re-logic, and Pipeworks Studio have announced that their 2D sidescrolling sandbox-style building game, Terraria is now available to purchase as a physical version for Nintendo Switch. The game has been available on the Switch digitally since the 27/06/2019.
Consumers in Spain, Portugal, Australia, and New Zealand have been able to get their hands on the physical release since the 22nd of August whilst consumers in the U.K, France, Italy and other European territories have been able to purchase it since the 23rd August.
Terraria is a game where players have to fight for survival while they craft things such as weapons and equipment as well as dwellings for their own protection. Think, Minecraft but in 2D with a side view. That said the game is a totally different experience to Minecraft in many respects. If you like Minecraft you should probably give this a go.
