The console editions of delightful downloadable dig 'em up Terraria will launch next week, publisher 505 Games announced today. "Oh, pssh, sure, a digging game, like we're not awash with Minecraft clones already" you scoff, person I imagined for rhetorical effect. Hold your tongue! The 2D Terraria, which set PC gamers swooning in 2011, is a far more action-y take on making holes in the ground, with fine weapons to craft and honking great bosses to kill.
The console edition is jazzed up with four-player split-screen, eight-player online multiplayer, and extra content including new weapons, armour, pets, enemies, music, and a new final boss.
It'll hit PlayStation 3 on March 26 then Xbox 360 on March 27, priced at $15 either way. Creator Re-logic handed the game over to Engine Software for the console port.
