Nintendo Switch gamers can enjoy the third Torchlight game starting today just as promised. The new adventure "filled with hordes of goblins, undead and other dangerous Netherim creatures" is now live and early adopters also get the exclusive Ashen Glittersprite pet.

The Nintendo Switch port of Torchlight III became available a few hours ago, as Perfect World promised on October 13, when the game went live for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Love it or hate it, but this hack-and-slash series is here to stay.

With a reasonable price of US$39.99 on all platforms, Torchlight III now holds a Mixed rating on Steam. After 5,776 reviews, the players still can't decide if this game is really worth the price or not. By taking a quick look at the more popular reviews, I can easily conclude that many players end up facing various bugs and — according to most of the negative opinions — the story is extremely sketchy and there is no point in comparing Torchlight III to its predecessors from this perspective.

Those who get the game on Nintendo Switch today will get the platform-exclusive Ashen Glittersprite pet. Remains to see if the game lives up to the expectations or fails in doing so. Do you think that Torchlight III is good enough to be a part of the franchise or maybe they should have released this title under a different name and then start working on a worthy Torchlight II successor?

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
