Indie game developer Stoic announces plans to release Banner Saga 2 onto Nintendo Switch on June 7, 2018.
Previously released on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, Banner Saga 2 is an emotionally charged sequel as you shoulder increasing responsibility for the survival of your clan in the face of immense grief. As others look to you for guidance, your choices continue to count and bold leadership decisions, wise use of resources, and skillful battle tactics are vital to ensure your survival. Banner Saga 2 also introduces a new race to the series, the legendary horseborn, a centaur-like race which enhances combat and adds another layer of intrigue to the story. It also releases with a brand new evocative soundtrack composed by grammy nominated and BAFTA winning composer, Austin Wintory.
“We are proud to launch Banner Saga 2 on Nintendo Switch, hot on the heels of the launch of the first game, The Banner Saga last month," says Steve Escalante, General Manager of publisher Versus Evil. "There has never been a better time to get into this awarding winning series. Strategy and RPG Nintendo Switch fans will get the opportunity to play through the entire saga, from start to finish, this Summer when the third and final chapter Banner Saga 3 releases. Playing this game on the Nintendo Switch is truly a joy, allowing you to play whenever and wherever you can."
Banner Saga 3, the third and final installment of the mature themed role playing strategy series will launch on July 26th, 2018, for PC, Mac, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Mobile platforms are expected to launch later on in the year.
