The Banner Saga Finally Headed To PS4, Xbox One In January

With its striking artistic style and classic adventure/strategy gameplay, this one will be worth checking out.

as announced over at the PlayStation Blog, The Banner Saga will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 12, 2016.

Originally released for PC and mobile devices, the viking strategy title needed to have redesigned controls for the new consoles. Said Stoic founder and technical director John Watson:

"Porting the game certainly presented technical challenges that we needed to overcome. 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."

Unfortunately, Watson also confirmed that the Vita version had been put on hold. The good news is that the team is currently working on a sequel, which is slated to release later next year. Perhaps it will debut on multiple platforms this time, including PS4 and Xbox One. You'll want it if you enjoy the original!

Anybody else get a distinct Vandal Hearts vibe with this gameplay?
