Indie developer Stoic has today announced that their Viking RPG/Turn Based Strategy title The Banner Saga
will be making its way onto Xbox One next month. Originally confirmed back in September at PAX
(and long rumoured before that), the developers have been working hard to ensure that the experience remains the same while playing with a gamepad as it is currently with a mouse or touch controls; as such, parts of the user experience have been adapted to fit better for consoles. Furthermore, the game has been localised into French, German, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Italian, with the developer also confirming that players will be able to import their progress into The Banner Saga 2
when that releases.
Alongside this release date announcement, a new trailer for the game has also been released, showing off the game's spectacular art and turn based gameplay:
The Banner Saga
will arrive on the Xbox One on January 12th, 2016.
