So, after months of anxious waiting, our console Terrarians are finally enjoying the spoils of Terraria 1.2 (plus a few extra goodies)!
As we have with the PC updates, we are setting up a feedback thread...and this is it.
Please utilize this thread to provide feedback on the update - tweaks, ideas for the guide, love for the devs, etc.
As with all feedback threads (and threads in general), please be respectful of the fellow posters and constructive in the feedback. Personal attacks and overt rudeness will not be tolerated. This is just a pre-emptive warning on that front.
If you are experiencing bugs, please note that there is a section for Bug Reports which would be the best place to report them (be sure to prefix your report with which console you are on).
505 has also provided this for Bug Reports:
In sure some bug reports will occur here...but just note the above guidance to improve your chances of resolution.

As we escape the icy grip of Winter’s cold months and look forward to a Spring of hope and life, we wanted to bring to your attention an imminent threat...lurking in the shadows. For you see, though the horrors of the Pumpkin and Frost Moons now lay safely behind us, an even greater evil awaits those adventurers brave enough to take up arms and fight for the very survival of Terraria.
Without further ado, we wish to give an advance “sneak peek” into some specifics around the close of the “Lunar Trilogy” – and the game’s main story arc itself – the Rise of Fishron!
This will be the final major update to Terraria’s core gameplay, including the addition of a final boss worthy of Terraria and the community that has supported it over the years.

Empowered by the rising Tidal Moon, Duke Fishron will wield a litany of devastating attacks against the player – including Bubble Bombs and the dreaded...
