Terraria, the side-scrolling, action-adventure sandbox game from Andrew Spinks’ Re-logic studio, is coming to PSN and XBL.

505 Games will published Terraria, which was originally released on PC in 2011. The game contains crafting and exploration themes, and has been played by 1.6 million people since release.

“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,” said Tim Woodley, head of global brand for 505 Games. “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”.

“I can’t say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3,” said the game’s creator Andrew Spinks. “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.”
