Stardew Valley now has better controller and language support on PC


Equivalent console update still in the works

With today’s PC update for Stardew Valley, it’s just a little bit easier to embrace the laborious farm life while playing with a gamepad instead of a mouse and keyboard. Menu navigation now works more like you’d expect, with your cursor snapping between items, and feels smoother all around.

Better yet, for non-English players, there are new localizations. The patch notes:

  • Translations for German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Japanese and Simplified Chinese.
  • When using a controller, the cursor will snap between menu buttons by default. If you disable that, the cursor will instead accelerate while moving.
  • When using a controller, pressing the back button will skip events that are skippable.
  • Exit to Title has returned.
  • Bug fixes

It’s nice to see Stardew further open itself up to a wider audience, and as for the controller tweaks, I’ll look forward to them crossing over to the console versions of the game soon enough.
