Stoic releases the second chapter of its epic Viking trilogy, Banner Saga 2, onto Nintendo Switch.
Winner of numerous awards, the game is an emotionally driven sequel to the original The Banner Saga game in which choices and leadership decisions ultimately dictate the survival of the clan in a world being corrupted and consumed by the Darkness. Players must once again marshall a careful use of resources in a turbulent world where allegiances will be tested and sacrifices are inevitable . Players will also be tested in combat where skillful, tactical decisions in battle are vital to ensure survival against insurmountable odds. Banner Saga 2 carries over the decisions players made from the first game, with a narrative that is guided by the complex and sometimes difficult choices they have made.
“We are gearing up for the end, and with that comes the launch of Banner Saga 2 on Nintendo Switch," said Steve Escalante, General Manager of publisher Versus Evil. "As we prepare to launch the third and final game in this epic award winning series this summer, Nintendo Switch fans get to continue their saga on the sequel, immersing themselves in stunning visuals, character building, tactical combat and the strong narrative that strategy players and RPG fans have come to expect from the Stoic team.”
Banner Saga 3, the third and final installment of the mature themed role playing strategy series, will launch on July 26, 2018 for PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. A version for mobile is also expected to release later in the year.
