Versus Evil and developer Stoic have announced that The Banner Saga, the first entry in the series, will be hitting Nintendo Switch this week.
“Launching The Banner Saga on Nintendo Switch is an exciting moment for us, as we gear up in 2018 to enter the third and final chapter of the series it’s only fitting we give Nintendo players an opportunity to enjoy this award winning Viking inspired saga where the journey begins.” Said Steve Escalante, General Manager of Versus Evil.
"We've always strived to share this epic series and the narrative of the saga across a variety of platforms and we are thrilled to now bring the Banner Saga to a whole new community of console players on the Nintendo Switch" said John Watson, Technical Director at Stoic.
The Banner Saga is an epic single player driven Viking saga, where a player’s choice in travel, conversation and combat determines the outcome of their own personal story as well as the survival of an entire civilization. The game also features stunning 2D animation and art, a unique tactical combat system and a cast of unforgettable characters, all of which drive this epic journey forward.
No word on when The Banner Saga 2 will be released, but the final chapter is expected in July, so likely before then. The game is also available on multiple platforms already, so you can start playing the game there if you want.
