Old-gen console-exclusive content[edit | edit source]

Most of the following content is also available on the 3DS version DS version.

Japanese Release[edit | edit source]

Terraria was released in the PlayStation Network in Japan during May 2013. It was translated by Japanese video game development and localization company Spike Chunsoft.

Exclusive content[edit | edit source]

The Japanese console versions seem to have everything the U.S. console versions have, aside from Purple Thread and a purple Hero's set. They also have some extra exclusive costumes, crafted from the exclusive White Thread, shown below. The Japanese wiki mentions that the Japanese 3DS version also had Purple Thread, but has no page for it, so perhaps it was translated incorrectly.

Exclusive to PS3 and Wii U Wii U
Exclusive to PSVita

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Reference to Terraria in Danganronpa's game menu
  • The visual novel adventure game Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc also features a small reference to Terraria in one of the game menus.
  • Terraria has its own Japanese website and used to have its own licensed Let's Play series.[4]
  • The Japan-exclusive vanity sets reference Toro Inoue, the mascot of Sony's PlayStation Network in Japan, who also appears in numerous other video games, Monomi and Monokuma from the video game franchise Danganronpa, and Shiren, protagonist of the roguelike video game Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer.
  • The Danganronpa crossover was suggested by the publisher of the game as an alternative for the Hero's set, as they were concerned it would trigger potential copyright issues in Japan.[5]
