Runic Games announced yesterday that folks on Xbox Live really like Torchlight. Or at least the idea of Torchlight. The hit PC hack and slash RPG which was recently published on Xbox Live Arcade on March 9th sold enough upon release to result in the best overall sale day in the company’s history.
If you didn’t play the PC version and want to take a spin on the couch with the XBLA game it’s well worth it. This is an excellent entry in this genre and for 1200 MS points, it’s a no brainer. That said, it remains a solo game; if you want multiplayer Torchlight you’re going to have to wait for the sequel which is set for a “2011” release.
