The Banner Saga May Get Ported To Consoles, Vita In 2014

If you don't want to play it on a mobile device, maybe you should wait.

Developer Stoic Games has revealed that they intend to release their tactical RPG, The Banner Saga, on consoles and even the PlayStation Vita. This would be after the game launches for the iPad, Android and Windows tablets this summer.

During a recent Digital Spy interview with Stoic programmer John Watson, we learn that the team wants to deliver console ports before 2014 is over:

"The ideal would be to get some console ports out before the end of the year. Whether we can make that happen or not, I don't know. Some things are easier than others. I think the game would be great on Vita, but I think that would come after other consoles. It's a path of least resistance thing; there's three of us."

Watson added that he'd rather see the game on the PS4 as opposed to the Vita, because they'd have to make some control changes for it to work well on Sony's portable. The Banner Saga came out for the PC in January, so you can try it if you're so inclined. If not, like I said, wait a bit.

Sweet! I hope they do bring it to the PS4 and Vita. I almost bought it on Steam when it was on sale a few days ago. Glad I held off. I can wait.

This is a great game. There is one flaw though, you can't find a spot to level up your characters, you have to level them up smartly as you move along and save wisely, because if you dont, it can really hurt you down the road.
