Terraria Coming to XBLA

By Jonathan Barnes, 4 years ago
Originally released for PC in 2011, Terraria, Re-logic Studio's side-scrolling, action-adventure sandbox game, sold over 1.6 million copies and was so well-received that it created a demand for a wider console-based release. Today, Engine Software and 505 Games announced that they'd be bringing the hit to the Xbox LIVE Arcade.

Tim Woodley, Head of Global Brand for 505 Games is excited to bring Terraria to consoles with some new content:

The block-building genre has taken the world by storm and Terraria has garnered a massive following through its increased focus on adventure and discovery. We’re looking forward to bringing an already hugely successful experience to a brand new console audience and we can’t wait for the existing Terraria fan base to experience all-new content.
Andrew Spinks, creator of Terraria added:

I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3! To see it come so far is a complete shock, especially after such humble beginnings. It’s always been my dream to have as many people as possible know and enjoy Terraria as much as I have, and this is another big step in that direction! It’s been awesome working with 505 Games, and I can’t wait for everyone to see the additional features that they’ve been able to bring to this new edition of the game.
Screenshots have also emerged to give gamers a quick visual clue as to what Terraria entails.
