Anyone who’s been following my posts on here for the last few years knows that I absolutely love The Banner Saga; they’re arguably among my favourite indie games ever. Given that they’re really high profile indie games, and that indie titles have been doing exceptionally well on Nintendo’s Switch, it was only a matter of time before they made the jump to Nintendo’s hybrid.
That happened today- Nintendo announced ion their Spring Nindies Showcase that The Banner Saga games would be coming over to the Switch. The Banner Saga 3 is set to launch on the Switch this Summer, which actually makes the Switch the first console the game has been explicitly confirmed for. The first two games are set to come “soon” as well, though we have no release windows. Nintendo was quick to point out that your decisions will carry over across games, which seems to suggest they might be releasing before the third game is out.
The Banner Saga is an excellent blend of a strategy RPG, a visual novel, and an adventure game; they’re the kinds of games that are perfect for portability, so having the full series on the Switch is a great coup for Nintendo. Check out the announcement trailer for The Banner Saga 3 below.
