Stoic’s Andrew Fitch–approved tactical RPG The Banner Saga is coming to mobile devices, publisher Versus Evil announced today.
The port will contain everything that the PC version does, including 8-10 hours of Viking-themed adventure depicted in hand-drawn 2D art, all 25 playable characters and the game’s 7 different classes. The only thing different is what’s new, and that’s an “enhanced” control scheme designed for tablet devices.
The Banner Saga’s mobile release will be for iOS, Android, and Windows tablets. Versus Evil has yet to announce a release window. Andrew awarded Stoic’s debut a 7.0 in EGM Issue #263, calling it “a weirdly enjoyable mix of Beowulf, The Oregon Trail, and Final Fantasy Tactics” despite “the paucity of enemy types, the sometimes-unbalanced leveling and combat, and a fair share of bugs.”
