“Perfect World Entertainment and Echtra Games are excited to announce that Torchlight III, the light-hearted and fast-paced dungeon crawler, is now available on the Nintendo Switch system for $39.99. Nintendo Switch adventurers can now explore the vibrant and epic world of Novastraia, hack’n’slash their way through myriad quests and boss battles across randomly-generated areas and acquire epic loot on-the-go. Those who purchase the Nintendo Switch version will also be granted an exclusive and adorable red fairy pet, the Ashen Glittersprite. In addition, Nintendo Switch players can utilize touch screen support that enables players to easily navigate in-game menus and their loot-filled inventory. Torchlight III is also available on Steam, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.”
We delivered our verdict on Torchlight III in a hands-on piece yesterday; MOP’s Justin argued that while it’s an amusing and serviceable OARPG (the word he used was “adequate”) and he especially loved the fort system, parts of it felt unfinished and just weren’t sucking him in, though that’s largely because it’s just not the MMORPG that was originally planned as Torchlight Frontiers.
