Torchlight II

Perfect World and Panic Button are bringing dungeon crawler Torchlight II to current-gen consoles later this year.

Runic Games only developed three titles during their nine existence – Torchlight, its sequel, and Hob – but all three are minor classics of their genres. Perfect World Entertainment, who acquired a significant stake in the studio before closing it in 2014, has announced that Panic Button are now porting the acclaimed Torchlight II to console for the first time. It’s scheduled for release on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Xbox One on September 3, 2019.

Set in the wild environs of Vilderan, Torchlight II sends players on an action RPG adventure with varied combat, a wealth of character customisation options, and, most importantly, a very cool pet system.

The console edition will include a specifically designed interface, enhanced game controller inputs, and some all new pets. The Nintendo Switch version also supports local wireless multiplayer for up to four players.

Andy Boggs, technical director at Panic Button, says:

“We’ve discovered that the core mechanics featured in Torchlight II translate really well onto consoles. It’s a solid multiplayer experience with fast-paced action and an almost endless progression system. Our team has been working hard on the console version to make sure that the combat feels just as fun and satisfying as it did on PC.”

If Torchlight II’s trip to console is handled well it’s definitely a game we can recommend. Perfect World promise more updates before its September release.
