Pipework Studios Showcases Terraria Nintendo Switch Touch Controls

Terraria has graced many platforms and has been a big success. Now the game is coming to the Nintendo Switch system. To illustrate how the game works when played in handheld mode, Pipe Works, have produced a video showing the game’s use of the Nintendo Switch’s touchscreen. The team says you can:

  • Interact with the main menu, adjust settings, browse accomplishments, and customize your character.
  • In-game, you can….
  • Pinch to adjust zoom (be careful, this will use the item currently selected in the hotbar!)
  • Press to use the item currently selected in the hotbar
  • Press the minimap to instantly activate the full-screen map
  • Press any item on the hotbar to select it
  • Double-tap the hotbar to open the inventory
  • Press to select any item in the inventory
  • Double-tap on any inventory item to activate build mode
  • Press and hold + drag on any item to move it around the inventory/move it to a chest or shop/equip it/throw it in the trash
  • Press any in-inventory button or interactable text (quick stack, sort, loot all, crafting menu, map display types)
  • Press and hold up or down on the crafting wheel to scroll through it
  • Press and hold on an item in the crafting wheel to craft, then drag to place it in the inventory
  • Press on any of the accessory info buttons to toggle visibility
  • Double-tap any of the accessory slots to toggly visibility
  • ​You can also adjust the in-game settings with touch!

  1. Damn, about time we get some news on that game.
    I’m not really in crafting games, but this game is somthing special.
    Also would be awesome if we’d get some Starbound.

    1. There’s actually been loads of news ready. Terraria mobile has been released for beta testing for a new update after years, 1.3.6 is really really close to releasing with weekly spoilers, and Redigit will have an announcement at E3
