Torchlight 2 Coming To Consoles This Fall

Time for a deep dive.

The dungeon-crawler Torchlight 2 is coming to consoles with extra content this fall. The original game was a PC exclusive, but now it will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It's due on September 3 for $20.

Torchlight 2 was originally developed by Runic Games, and the port is being handled by Panic Button. These console ports feature an improved targeting system and revised console-friendly UI, and new pets. The Nintendo Switch version will let up to four dungeon divers play with their friends on a local wireless connection.

Now Playing: Diablo Meets Destiny In Torchlight Frontiers

The original Torchlight was released on PC and Xbox 360, and helped scratch the Diablo itch for action-RPG fans. Torchlight 2 came in 2012, and went head-to-head against Diablo 3. Torchlight is a bit lighter in tone than Blizzard's series, though, and includes some mechanical differences.

"We've discovered that the core mechanics featured in Torchlight II translate really well onto consoles," says Panic Button's Andy Boggs. "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."

GameSpot's review of Torchlight 2 was positive, crediting its distinct character classes, enticing loot, and vibrant visuals. Publisher Perfect World is currently preparing a brand new Torchlight game, called Torchlight Frontiers.
