VGChartz's Stephen LaGioia: "The question largely remains as to whether or not this re-release is worthy of another purchase. It sits at 30 USD, which is somewhat steep for what’s largely a direct port of an 8 year old game; especially for a digital download. Still, collectors and fans alike may find added value in nabbing a physical cart (which exists at the same price) of this otherwise digital-only release. With this caveat: owners of the mobile and/or previous console ports of Terraria might want to skip this one. On the other hand it's surely a worthy investment for new Nintendo fans seeking an enduring, expansive Metroidvania, and diehards wanting a relatively new, more convenient way to play this stellar adventure game."
