Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games have announced that Torchlight III will release on Nintendo Switch.
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.
“To bring Torchlight III to the Nintendo Switch has been a top ask from our fans, and we’re thrilled to fulfill this wish,” explains Echtra Games CEO and Torchlight franchise co-founder Max Schaefer.
“With Torchlight III being one of the most accessible games in the ARPG genre and an excellent entry point into the Torchlight universe, Torchlight III will be a fun pick-up-and-play adventure on this platform.”
Torchlight III will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Fall 2020. Those that buy the game on the portable home console will also receive an exclusive Red Fairy pet.
