Torchlight 2 will be released for current-gen consoles this fall and Hob: The Definitive Edition arrives on Switch next month.

An enhanced version of Torchlight 2 was announced for consoles today, and it’s expected sometime this fall.

Originally developed by Runic Games, Panic Button has spruced up the original which saw release on PC way back in 2012.

It is a rather excellent action-RPG, and we can’t wait to see how it looks on newer consoles. Additional details are promised soon.

Fun fact, Panic Button is the studio working on the Switch version of Wolfenstein: Youngblood, and also brought Doom and Wolfenstein 2 to the console.

Torchlight Frontiers, a shared-world action-RPG set in the same universe, is currently in development for consoles and PC. In the works at Echtra Games,  led by former Runic Games and Blizzard North co-founder, Max Schaefer, it’s set for release sometime this year.

Hob, also developed by Runic Games and released in 2017, is coming to Switch as a Definite Edition from Panic Button.

Announced at PlayStation Experience 2015, Hob is an single-player exploration adventure set in vibrant, lush world  full of danger. You play as a character  dropped into the game without any text, backstory, or dialog. One of your arms is also missing, and has been replaced with a metal appendage.

As you progress through the game the story will be revealed. During your adventure you will fix the world and learn your true identity.

Hob: The Definitive Edition on Switch will feature added camera controls, improvements to the game’s UI, a variety of quality-of-life improvements, HD rumble and touch screen functionality.

It releases April 17 for Switch, with more features to be announced at that time. Those who purchase now through release will save 10% off the original retail price of $19.99 on the Nintendo eShop.
