The Banner Saga Coming to Consoles in 2016!

The award winning RPG The Banner Saga will finally be making its way to Xbox One and PS4 next month! Stoic made the announcement about it coming to consoles with a redesigned user experience that is more suited for consoles.

Porting the game certainly presented technical challenges that we needed to overcome, and gave us an opportunity to redesign the user experience for console controllers. We have managed to merge the story and gameplay from Banner Saga with a refined controller interface to make it a very enjoyable console gaming experience.

Banner Saga 2 will also be making its way onto consoles as well, but no word on an exact date. You will however be able to carry your progress over to the second game though. General Manager of Versus Evil, Banner Saga’s publisher said:

With this latest achievement, the Stoic team is able to work on more platforms and reach more customers with its games and technology. This is not a small thing to consider for such a small team. Looking ahead at what this could mean for Banner Saga 2 gets really exciting.

Expect to see The Banner Saga on Xbox One and PS4 January 12, 2016!
