Torchlight II developer Runic Games takes some of the sting out of the game’s developmental delays by releasing a video which shows off some snazzy new in-game pet designs. Some are returning favorites, but others are newcomers to the Torchlight series.
New pets include the chakckawary, described by developers “as a Velociraptor crossed with a Cassowary,” excels in combat, particularly against jellies, spiders, and dwarves. There is also the hawk, who dive-bombs enemies from above then returns to the skies, the panther, whose ferocity is matched by its stealth, and the bulldog and wolf pets, who replace the standard ‘dog’ option from the first game and add a little variety to the canine element. Check out the trailer for yourself after the jump.
