Torchlight coming to Xbox Live Arcade

January 6, 2011

Runic Games made the surprising announcement today that Torchlight, their critically and commercially successful Diablo clone, would be making the jump to consoles soon.

Microsoft has secured its release as part of the Xbox Live Arcade House party lineup that will begin releasing on February 18th. However, there’s no word on whether Torchlight will eventually make its way to the PSN as well.

Runic Games is remaking the control scheme and interface for the game to feel more natural on the Xbox 360. They also announced that they’ll be adding new quests, weapons, armor, and a new pet for the upcoming release.

The full list of Xbox Live Arcade House Party games follows.

  • Torchlight
  • Beyond Good and Evil HD
  • Hard Corps Uprising
  • Bejeweled Blitz Live
  • Full House Poker
