If I ever decide I want to get the game on the Switch in the future, will I have to repurchase it?

    I already have Stardew Valley on Steam, and I heard it will be released on the Switch. I plan on eventually getting a Switch, and I was wondering if anyone knew if I would have to repurchase it in order to play it on there, or if I could just connect my Switch with my Steam account or something to install the copy I already have.

    EDIT: Oh! Sorry, I forgot I purchased my current copy not through steam but through HumbleBundle. I don't know if that changes things.

        you ll have to repurchase SDV if you want to use it on anything that is not a PC, unfortunately. They are after all different versions of the game, one made for consoles, other for PC.

          on the upside, if you have to replace your switch, you shouldnt have to rebuy your copy because now it will be tied to your nintendo account rather than the actual device, like it used to be.
          (took them a long time to get to that spot...probably the scare that the shareholders LIKE us having to rebuy every game per system lol)
