Terraria became a surprise indie hit on PC (and later, consoles) a few years back, and now with its sequel Terraria 2 well into planning and production, developer Re-Logic is looking to expand its outreach beyond PC and bring the game to consoles more quickly.
With the original Terraria releasing on Xbox 360, PS3, and mobile devices (Android/iOS) after its initial PC release, creator Andrew Spinks confirmed that while the team has plans to bring Terraria 2 to consoles, specifically the 3DS will not be among those consoles getting their follow-up sequel. In a statement to Pocket Gamer, Spinks mentioned:
“I am wanting to code Terraria 2 in a more portable language so it can be released on multiple platforms at launch or close to launch. 3DS is something I was very interested in getting Terraria on but the system unfortunately cannot run Terraria the way it needs to be ran.”
While it looks like 3DS gamers will unfortunately not be getting their hands on Terraria 2, it sounds like the game will still be plenty available on other platforms when it releases (currently TBA).
