Terraria, the side-scrolling sandbox game originally released on Windows PC in 2011 by indie studio Re-Logic, will be available on mobile devices this summer, publisher 505 Games announced today.

The company did not announce specific platforms, so it's unclear at this point if the title will be released on iOS, Android or other mobile platforms. The mobile version of Terraria is being developed by Dutch indie studio Codeglue, the team behind the Xbox Live Arcade and mobile versions of Rocket Riot.

Terraria on mobile will include leaderboards and achievements, as well as Facebook integration that will allow players to share screenshots. Codeglue is optimizing Terraria for smartphone and tablet touchscreens, according to 505 Games. The publisher released Terraria on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in March, and is also publishing a PlayStation Vita version this summer that is being developed by Engine Software, the studio behind the PSN and XBLA versions.
