Good morning Terrarians! I want to start this announcement thread for 1.3.1 by thanking our amazing team for their hardwork and dedication to this update. @Yoraiz0r had his work cut out for him with adding controller support to an engine that was not built for it. Not only did he make it work but he made it work so beautifully, thank you so [email protected] as always did a fantastic job providing assets to a sometimes too picky team. Thank you for your creativity and patience! @Arkhalis and the entire beta testing team- You rock! This update would have been a little messy without you! Everyone else behind the scenes- You know you are very much loved and appreciated!!
Now that all that mushy business is out of the way we can jump back into things! This update is focused on new mechanics and controller support- yay! Thank you everyone who provided suggestions in the mechanics suggestion thread- you gave us some great ideas! Below you will find the changelog as well as some other fancy things to check out, please read through everything before jumping into the game, I promise it is worth it!

We have an update on the Amazon version of Terraria for you:
As we have mentioned in past news updates around the Amazon version, the game became quite unstable with the most recent content updates. After a lot of investigation in partnership with Amazon, we traced the issue back to a compatibility problem with Terraria's savegame system and the Amazon "Whispersync" cloud saving system. In the end, there is really no great way to resolve this compatibility issue without breaking Terraria saves - which we would never want to do! However, we do have a solution - so please read on...
In order to address the stability issues on Amazon and to be able to move forward, we need to disable Whispersync service for Terraria in a way that also allows Amazon players to retain their save files. After looking at numerous options and discussing the pros and cons of each, Amazon have approved our approach to use Google Drive to handle both existing and new cloud-saved games and will allow us to disable Whispersync. *Amazon users will need a Google account tied to their Amazon device to permit the new save system to work - so it would be a good idea to go ahead and get this set up now so that you are ready when the time comes!*
*One very important side affect to the approach we’ve chosen will impact players who have deleted Terraria or have removed local data. These players will not have access to the WS Cloud and therefore will not be able to access their saves. The good news is that if you want to go ahead and reinstall between now and the release of the coming Amazon update and save your progress, you should be able to avoid this issue!*
Content-wise, all of the great changes and content updates that have already come to the iOS and Google...
In addition to the Nintendo e-Shop digital copy, you can now purchase a retail copy of Terraria for 3DS! 3DS has added even more versatility to the expanding world of Terraria and we are excited to have reached this milestone along with the Wii U version (coming soon.)
Get your 3DS copy at any of the following retailers:

Good Morning Terrarians!
As you know, we have had a series of Terraria merchandise for some time now - which many of you have taken the opportunity to pick up. From calendars to stickers to posters, toys, and more: we are working with Jazwares as well as directly with a variety of merch providers (how about those sick OneDrop Terrarians?!?) to expand our offerings into areas that will satisfy our quite diverse fanbase.
We will have more to share around that as the year progresses....but we wanted to take some time today to share what we feel is one of the absolutely coolest things we have had the chance to work on: a Terraria Comic Book with DC Comics!!! Join Calista the Dryad and reluctant hero Alistair on a quest against a terrible evil....or maybe just for fortune and glory.....
This project was truly a collaboration between Re-Logic and the amazing people over at DC Comics. From the art style to the story, DC was a pleasure to work with and the end result is a fantastic collectors' item that is equal parts awesome and authentic to Terraria. We sincerely hope that you enjoy it as much as we do! We are quite hopeful that it does really well - as we would love the chance to do more of these.
The Comic comes packaged with two Terraria figures (Platinum Armor and Dryad) in the same style as the existing toy line. It is available at Toys R Us online now and should be in stores soon if not already!!! To pick yours up, simply click the comic cover above to head directly to the Toys R Us page!
We are really excited about this collaboration and hope that it is merely...
