Created by Andrew Spinks's Re-logic studio, the side-scrolling action-adventure sandbox game allows players to create and build with a wide array of materials and collectible items. The game has sold 1.6 million copies since its 2011 debut.

"I can't say how excited I am to finally have Terraria come to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3," Spinks said. "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. I can't wait for everyone to see the additional features that [505 Games] has been able to bring to this new edition of the game."

The console version of Terraria is being developed by Engine Software, and will be available on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network in early 2013.

No other details about the game's new features have been released at this time.
