The epic strategy series The Banner Saga is coming to a close with the game’s third and last chapter that this summer, however for those that have yet to leap in the series, the franchise’s very first chapter will be coming to the Nintendo Switch just on the horizon.
Over on the game’s Twitter webpage, author Versus Evil and programmer Stoic Games have declared that The Banner Saga — the first in the strategy RPG trilogy — will be accessible for Nintendo Switch owners May 17th, 2018. The game will retail Switch for $19.99, and pre-orders for it are currently on the Nintendo Switch eShop.
The game’s Switch release was previously announced during one of Nintendo’s indie concentrated demonstrations, along with the news which the series’ third and second chapters will also be coming to the platform this year. Given that the series concentrates on player choices and decisions, obtaining all three available on a single platform will certainly be an incentive for players to catch up on the previous two games prior to the last installment, The Banner Saga 3, debuts in July.
The Banner Saga will release for Nintendo Switch on May 17th, 2018 — the name is also available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android.
