Today sees the launch of Torchlight II on Nintendo Switch, an award-winning dungeon crawler originally developed by Runic Games. A new launch trailer has appeared to show it off, and we've plonked it up above for you lovely lot to check out.
As you may already know, this new version of the game for Switch, PS4 and Xbox One has been handled by Panic Button, the team behind such Switch ports as DOOM, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, and Warframe. The studio has become something of a fan-favourite around these parts as of late, so we imagine there'll be a fair bit of interest in the game.
Torchlight II has players exploring a world filled with bloodthirsty monsters and bountiful treasure. Panic Button's updated version of the game features brand new content including new pets which are exclusive to each individual platform (Switch gets a unicorn), enhanced controls, an improved targetting system, and a new interface designed specifically for consoles. Here's a quick feature list:
Play co-op with up to 4 players online. Experiment with hero synergies and take on the fiercest opponents together, for the world’s most awesome loot.
Create and customize a character from one of four distinct classes. Each class can be played as either male or female with customized features. Robust skillsets and powerful equipment provides tons of opportunity for unique character builds.
Open, Dynamic World
Explore vast overland areas and multiple hub towns. Fight through rain and snow, day and night. Level randomization ensures fresh new layouts, paths, loot, and monsters every time you play.
Pets and Fishing
Empower your pet with special transforming consumables. Pets can fight by your side or sell loot while you’re out adventuring.
New Game Plus
Once you've completed Torchlight II's primary campaign, you can start again with the same character for a significantly greater challenge. You'll keep all of the skills, gold, and gear you worked so hard for.
The game is available worldwide today on the Switch eShop and you can grab it for $19.99 / £17.99. We'll have our full review of the game for you shortly, so if you want to learn more about it, make sure to keep an eye on the site!
