Concerned Ape’s regularly taken to Twitter to discuss progress on the Stardew Valley 1.5 mobile update. Back in February 2021, he committed to bringing the patch to those platforms. In November 2022, an update said it was still on track for a release this year.
The 1.5 update brought a number of new features to Stardew Valley. Ginger Island appears as a new location. You can also bring ostriches to your farm and start growing crops like bananas and pineapples.
Stardew Valley is available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, PC, and mobile devices. The Stardew Valley Android and iOS update 1.5 still has a December 2022 release window. As a reminder, the Android and iOS versions of the game got to 1.4 in February 2020.
