Torchlight 2 to make console debut this fall, Hob to release on Switch

Popular action role-playing dungeon crawler Torchlight 2 will finally be getting a console release later this year.

With the closure of original developer Runic Games in 2017, Panic Button – a studio well known for porting games – has stepped in to take the reins.

Although not many details of the Torchlight 2 port were revealed, it’s safe to say that the game will be enhanced for consoles in some way. Torchlight 2 received favourable reviews from critics on its 2015 release on PC and holds an impressive 88 score on Metacritic. With it’s fantastic solo and cooperative multiplayer, the game is sure to be a hit once more on consoles this fall.

As well as Torchlight 2 heading to current gen consoles, action adventure game Hob – which was originally released on PC and PS4 in 2017 – will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch on Thursday 4th April.

In Hob “players delve into the mysteries around them, they discover a planet in peril. Can it be mended, or will the world fall further into chaos?”

The game has been enhanced for the Nintendo Switch and will feature HD Rumble and touch screen support. The game has also had some quality of life improvements, “with increased camera control options, streamlined menus, and a reworked campaign that make discovering the world of Hob better than ever!”

You can pre-purchase Hob: The Definitive Edition now on the Nintendo Store for £16.19, which is complete with a 10% discount until Thursday 18th April.
