Torchlight II is debuting in Asia with a new localization, and to celebrate, developer Runic Games is releasing new pets for the game. One of the pets will be, appropriately, a panda.
There will be three pets altogether, and the first one (the panda) will be added in the next patch. The pets will be available worldwide.
In a side note, Runic also re-stated that there would not be a console version of Torchlight II. The question was asked in part due to Diablo III coming to next-gen consoles.
