Farming-themed role-playing game Stardew Valley, already a hit on consoles and PCs, is launching on iPhone and iPad Oct. 24, developer ConcernedApe (Eric Barone) revealed on Tuesday.

Unlike many iOS ports, Stardew Valley is making a transition in full, with most major features and content intact.

The one exception is co-op multiplayer, a relatively recent addition on other platforms. PC players will even be able to migrate their saves to iOS using the file transfer feature in iTunes, as long as they come from an un-modded version of the game.

To accommodate mobile devices, controls and menus have been redesigned for touchscreens.

The plot of the game sees the protagonist inheriting their grandfather's farm, which they can then improve and expand. Players can also fish and raise livestock, and fight various creatures as they explore local caves. 30 residents are available to interact with in Pelican Town — some of whom can be courted and married, including same-sex relationships.

Preorders for the iOS port begin today. The game costs $7.99, and requires iOS 10 or later.
