The Banner Saga Lands May 17 On Nintendo Switch

Stoic and Versus Evil have announced the release date for The Banner Saga on Nintendo Switch this morning.

The Banner Saga will be available on the Nintendo eShop from May 17, 2018 in North America and Europe. The Banner Saga 2 and The Banner Saga 3 will arrive later this year.

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.

“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.
