The Banner Saga is Headed to Tablets

banenrsa1Have you checked out The Banner Saga yet? If not, here’s another chance.

The Banner Saga is a very unique game. It tells the tale of Vikings on an epic quest, and it does so with hand-drawn animation and deep, robust turn-based strategy gameplay. The game was well received and represents the high quality we’ve come to expect from small studios in these modern gaming times.




If you haven’t played it and turn-based strategy games are your thing, you’re missing out. But don’t worry; you’ll soon have more ways to check out the game. According to developer Versus Evil, The Banner Saga will soon be launching on iOS and Android tablets. No specific release date was provided, but we do know that the game will be hitting app stores everywhere sometime this summer.


The tablet version of the game will be full-featured. In other words, it will be exactly the same as the version that launched for Mac and Windows earlier this year. The only differences are the controls (since the original launch didn’t use touch controls) and possibly a price drop (I hope).


What do you think? Will you check out The Banner Saga on your tablet?
