Speaking to 1UP
, Runic Games' Max Schaefer intimated that he'd like to see the company's upcoming RPG Torchlight
make an appearance on Xbox Live Arcade
. Unfortunately, Schaefer admitted that Runic is a small developer and is focused on bringing out the Torchlight
MMO next, so an XBLA version may not be in the cards. He noted his belief that an XBLA version "would really do great," however.
Given the enjoyable time we spent with the PC version
at PAX, we're inclined to agree. A dungeon crawler in the same vein as Diablo
would be a perfect fit for consoles, especially with the addition of multiplayer. Here's hoping Runic finds a way to make it happen.
