Perfect World Entertainment and Panic Button have released a launch trailer for Torchlight II, which is now available on Nintendo Switch.

The sequel to the award-winning Torchlight was originally developed by Runic Games, and, now coming to the portable home console, you will have the chance to relive the classic hack ‘n’ slash action RPG.

You play as an adventurer that sets out to explore Vilderan – a sprawling continent that’s become populated with monsters, with secrets to uncover.

The Nintendo Switch port has introduced enhanced controls, an improved targeting system, a new interface designed specifically for console, and the chance to connect multiple consoles to play over a local wireless connection.

Those that buy the game on the Nintendo eShop will receive a Unicorn as a Nintendo Switch exclusive pet.

“We’re excited to welcome gamers back to the world of Torchlight,” enthuses Perfect World Entertainment COO Yoon Im.

“Panic Button Games has done a phenomenal job of bringing the magic of Torchlight 2 to consoles. Now a new generation of players can discover why the game is a beloved cult classic for RPG fans!”

Panic Button head of production Dan Hernberg adds: “Developing Torchlight II for consoles has been a labor of love for our team.

“As long-time fans of the Torchlight series, we were thrilled when Perfect World chose us to bring this iconic game to new platforms. We hope Torchlight fans are ready to relive the adventure. Gold and glory await!”

Torchlight II is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide.
