Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games have announced that Torchlight III is now available on Nintendo Switch.
“The time has come for Nintendo Switch players to gather their wits and brave the frontier!” enthuses Echtra Games CEO and Torchlight franchise co-founder Max Schaefer.
“Torchlight III is a fun adventure in an epic, care-free world with light-hearted themes, monsters, items, and characters that everyone can enjoy. The game is a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch as both new and longtime ARPG players can easily pick up and play this adventure and have a great time spending countless hours dungeon crawling.
“or all you Nintendo Switch players who are pet lovers out there, don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you — we hope you love the extremely cute yet deadly exclusive Ashen Glittersprite pet as much as we do!”
A century has passed since the events of Torchlight II, where the great heroes of old had defeated The Dark Alchemist.
In this light-hearted and fast-paced dungeon crawler sequel, Novastraia is once again threatened by an invasion and you must set out to defend the land from the evil Netherim and its allies.
With what promises to be “satisfying” hack-and-slash combat, epic loot drops and the beloved pet system, you can also expect new features such as fully customisable forts, unique Relic skills and “a new end-game experience.”
There are four diverse hero classes each with unique abilities and powers in Torchlight III, which are:
- The Dusk Mage is an enchanter who harnesses the power of light and dark energy to conjure devastating attacks.
- The Forged is a powerful robot who relies on an arsenal of weaponry to build up heat and unleash explosive assaults.
- The Railmaster is a locomotive savvy powerhouse who steams into combat with a massive hammer and heavily armed battle train.
- The Sharpshooter is a powerful and nimble ranged character who uses incredible skill with ranged weapons and magical trinkets to take on enemies from afar.
Torchlight III is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide. Those that buy the game on the portable home console will also receive an exclusive Ashen Glittersprite Fairy pet.
