The Banner Saga Coming to PS4 in January

It has been a long time coming, but The Banner Saga is finally ready for its PlayStation 4 debut which has been set for January 12th. The Banner Saga originally released for PC and mobile devices in 2014 to a positive critical response and was announced for consoles awhile ago. The game took some time to bring over to consoles due to the game being a challenge to translate to a controller, but Stoic believe they have found an enjoyable way to play the game using a controller and are ready to release the game.

John Watson, founder and technical director at Stoic:

“We have been working on porting Banner Saga to consoles for some time. Porting the game certainly presented technical challenges that we needed to overcome, and gave us an opportunity to redesign the user experience for console controllers. We have managed to merge the story and gameplay from Banner Saga with a refined controller interface to make it a very enjoyable console gaming experience.”

The Banner Saga 2 was announced for a 2015 release, but was delayed to 2016 on PC.
