Some called it a Minecraft clone. Some called it a fun sidescroller with enough unique features to distance itself from that game. Either way, Terraria made a splash last year on PC, managing to sell 200,00 copies within its first week on Steam. Now, it seems the 2D world-building game is coming to consoles.

Developer Re-Logic has just announced that Terraria will be coming to Playstation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in early 2013. Supposedly, these versions will include extra content that wasn’t included in the PC version. Pricing has not been announced, but it likely won’t be too far from the PC title’s $9.99 USD price point.

PC fans of the game are already outraged that the beloved title is migrating to consoles, going so far as to light up the Terraria Facebook page with hateful comments.

Released in May 2011, Terraria is a 2D RPG Sandbox game that allows players to explore a large open world while combating monsters, crafting items, and constructing various buildings. Online cooperative play is also available. You can buy the PC version from Steam here.

The game has sold 1.6 million copes to date and received highly favorable reviews. Expect more info on this console iteration soon.

  1. I love this game. It&#039s cool that more people will get to have fun with it. I may even pick it up again on the PS3.
