By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
In a press release issued today, Microsoft and Runic Games have announced that everyone's favorite, Diablo-esque darling Torchlight is coming to Xbox LIVE Arcade as part of the upcoming House Party series of releases.

The controller interface has been reworked to fit the 360 controller using the dual sticks for moving and attacking, the bumpers for mana and health potions, and hotkeys being assigned to the triggers and buttons.

Runic has also confirmed via their Twitter feed that the XBLA version of the game will include, "new quests, armor sets, weapons, and a new pet."

A few screenshots have also come to light featuring the game and its new control interface.
