Terraria (also) going mobile

Terraria is a rather... unique game.

Terraria is a rather… unique game.

Two months after it was announced that the Re-logic’s Minecraft-inspired 2D sandbox role-playing game Terraria will be getting a handheld port, 505 Games revealed that the same 2011 PC indie hit is also heading to Android and iOS devices. The game is being ported to mobile devices by the small Dutch development studio Codeglue, best known for their work on Rocket Riot.

Fans of 2D side-scrolling adventuring in a randomly generated 16-bit world will also be pleased to know that Terraria mobile will support leaderboards and achievements, and probably less pleased to know (or won’t care) that it also boasts Facebook integration. Moreover, those worried that Terraria’s small blocks will be a pain to hit on a touch screen should rest easy, as we’ve got confirmation that zooming is definitely one of the game’s features.

The mobile adaptation of Terraria is slated for release this summer, just like its PlayStation Vita port. As always, we’ll let you know as soon as the game gets a price tag and an official release date.

Update, June 3: We’ve just received confirmation that Terraria will also be making its way to Windows Phone. It’s still unclear whether the WP version of the game will be released simultaneously with the launch of the iOS and Android ports, but we’ll keep you posted.

    Given that it was an XBLA title for a long time, this isn’t surprising. Still, great news. :)
