PWE OARPG Torchlight III is live on the Nintendo Switch

As promised, PWE and Echtra Games’ Torchlight III OARPG is live on the Nintendo Switch today, just a week after the game’s official launch for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The $39.99 pricetag holds firm on all platforms.

“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.

Feel like Switch is probably gonna be the best performing platform for the game. Hoping it does well enough for the team to be able to spend a meaningful amount of time actually fixing the issues/improving the game outside of working on any paid DLC.

I know it’s only been out a week on other platforms, but I’m still pretty annoyed that they haven’t fixed the quest drop/quest enemy bugs with endgame yet. Until they do I’m shelving it, no point in getting frustrated with maps I can’t complete and end up wasting time right now.
