Torchlight III Heads to Nintendo Switch in 2020

Torchlight III

Perfect World Entertainment have announced that Torchlight III will also be coming to Nintendo Switch, during the Nintendo Indie World Showcase.

Torchlight III entered Early Access in June, and will be getting a full release later in 2020. As previously reported, the game is set centuries after the events of Torchlight II, with the Ember Empire is in decline. Novastraia is under invasion from the Netherim, and players must build their character (and choose a pet), build a fort, and collect amazing gear to beat them back.

Torchlight III features new classes and subclasses, new pets, and a fort building system. The Nintendo Switch version will also include an exclusive Red Fairy pet.

You can find the Nintendo Switch announcement trailer below.
