I just wanted to let you know that our beloved game, Terraria, is coming to the Wii U and 3DS very soon. In fact, the 3DS version will be released on March 15th (in 5 days!) and the Wii U version on April 12th, according to Amazon. I have ordered both versions to give to my son, Vinny, for his birthday. He's stated interest in at least the 3DS version. Unfortunately, it seems the 3DS version is quite limited due to the surprisingly low specifications of the 3DS. It only comes in one world size, which seems to be the same as the mobile version. Different companies are working on each version. Both versions are expected to have all 1.2 content and more upon launch with further updates planned.

I just finished reading the post in the official forum and I suggest that you give it a read, too, especially if you have one of these Nintendo systems. One of the biggest things I got from it was stated at the very end, "[w]e have a few more surprises in store for this coming Holiday season, but we will save those for another time." I really wonder what those surprises are. I kind of hope it's not Terraria Otherworld because I thought we should be expecting it soon, but that may be the case. Maybe they'll announce Terraria 2, which I want to see. Feel free to speculate in the comment section below.

Anyway, I still miss playing Terraria and want to play it more, so I'm definitely looking forward to this.

Terraria does seem like a natural fit for the Wii U and 3DS.

So, my son's birthday was a few days ago and Terraria for the 3DS seems to be one of his favorite gifts. I also got him the Legend of Zelda Windwaker HD and Twilight Princess HD for the Wii U. He's enjoying all of them.

I found out that the 3DS version of Terraria saves your characters and worlds on your system and not on the game itself. This means, for example, my son can create characters and worlds in the game using his 3DS and I can do the same on mine. So, his stuff isn't on the game when I'm using my 3DS.

One of the things I took notice of when looking into the 3DS version is that the 3DS really isn't very powerful. However, the "New 3DS" has better hardware than the previous models. It seems that they *might* create a version of the game specifically for that 3DS model, but we'll just have to wait and see.

The Wii U version will be here in a couple of weeks, it seems. However, since I've now played the game on my Kindle, PS3, 3DS, and PC, I can say with certainty that the PC version is the ultimate one. Using the keyboard and mouse just makes everything better, to me, particularly switching between a tool and a weapon. I like using the touch screens to mine, although the mouse does a great job of that, too.

I may post later after I've tried the Wii U version. I expect it will be very much like the current console version, yet a combination of that, the mobile, and 3DS versions.
