Terraria Vita Finally Has a Launch Date!

Man, it seems like forever ago when Terraria was announced for PlayStation Vita. Actually, it was back in March so it kinda was forever ago. Back then the game was supposed to come out over the summer, but that never happened. While mobile versions for Android and iOS made release, the Vita version just seemed to vanish.

But hey, there’s good news. Scratch that–great news! An update just hit the Terraria Facebook page and official forums a few minutes ago confirming final release dates for the Vita version in Europe and North America. The game will hit PSN across Sony Computer Entertainment Europe territories on December 11th. It’ll then go on sale on the North American PlayStation Store on December 17th. Just in time for the Christmas holiday!

If you own the PS3 version of Terraria, you should notice a prompt to apply a new update. This preparatory patch will activate Cross-Play functionality so PS3 and Vita Terrarians can play together.

The Facebook update doesn’t say anything about other Cross features like Cross-Buy or Cross-Save–I know many current PS3 Terrarians are eager to find out if they’ll be able to download the Vita version for free or not–but it does mention that the PlayStation Blog will have more information coming soon. Hopefully we’ll find out the answers to these lingering questions then. Stay tuned!
