Make no mistake, The Banner Saga was one of my personal favorite games in 2014. It might not make our full list of best games of 2014 thanks to some heated debates amongst our gaming staff, but it was in the running.
This slow slog through a world drifting towards its full apocolypse is grueling, and it asks its players to make a lot of extremely difficult decisions. Currently only out on PC and mobile devices, the SRPG is now bound for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. It’s received a new trailer, featured above, in order to get this new audience of gamers excited.
The Banner Saga is wonderful, and it will see a sequel in 2015. As for whether or not the sequel jumps to the PlayStation platforms? I imagine Stoic would need to sell a bunch of the original to make it happen.
For now, The Banner Saga is slated to hit both the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2015. The studio has not announced Cross-Buy or Cross-Saves yet, but if those features come, we’ll have the news. Stay tuned.
