Hob Coming To Switch, Torchlight II Coming To Consoles

Today at PAX East, it was announced that popular porting company Panic Button is porting Hob, the action-adventure game from Runic Games. In addition, Panic Button is also porting Torchlight II, also from Runic Games, to unspecified consoles also in the future.

Hob is already available on PlayStation 4 and PC, but the newly dubbed Hob: The Definitive Edition is a Switch exclusive. This includes touch-screen controls, a revamped interface, quality-of-life improvements, HD rumble, and more. This version launches digitally on the Switch eShop on April 4.

Similarly, Panic Button is also porting Torchlight II, but it was not announced which consoles it would be coming to. The omission is strange, seeing as how Panic Button is considered the studio to port games to Switch, having worked on all the Bethesda ports, Warframe, and now Hob. The lack of a target system makes it sound like it's probably coming to everything, however, as soon as they're willing to just announce that.

Hyper Light Drifter TV Adaptation Coming From Castlevania Producer

Hyper Light Drifter TV Adaptation Coming From Castlevania Producer

Hyper Light Drifter, the artistic and action-packed Link to the Past-like indie game, is being adapted into a television series from producer Adi Shankar, who brought Castlevania to life on Netflix last year. Polygon spoke with the game's creator, Alx Preston, who has the adaptation under his watchful and decidedly excited eye.

The adaptation is still in the extremely early stages of development, but Shankar has signed on, which adds Hyper Light Drifter to his already-existing plans to create a light-handed "Games Universe" between Castlevania and the upcoming Devil May Cry. This doesn't mean that all these shows are crossing over, but Shankar wants to create a mentality between the adaptations he does, so we might be able to at least expect a similar tone.

No date has been set for the Hyper Light Drifter adaptation, but it likely won't be around for quite some time. In the meantime, you can play the game on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, with a Switch version releasing just last year.

The Peculiar Indie Game Heaven's Vault Has A Release Date

The Peculiar Indie Game Heaven's Vault Has A Release Date

Heaven's Vault is like what Tomb Raider would be without all the explosions – just a game about a woman exploring lost tombs and unraveling ancient mysteries. Today, developer Inkle announced that you can take a crack at solving its own historical mystery on April 16 on PS4 and PC.

In Heaven's Vault, you play as archaeologist Aliya Elasra who is tracking down a missing academic. To find him, you'll have to decipher glyphs of a lost language to make sense of the clues left in his wake. It's possible to misinterpret the glyphs, though, and Inkle says you'll never know if your translations are correct. The story in Heaven's Vault adapts to how you interpret the glyphs, so the story will be different for every player.
