A PlayStation Vita port of Stoic Games’ The Banner Saga was announced today at the PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas.

Developed by a trio of independent developers formerly employed by BioWare, the original release of The Banner Saga was on computer platforms (PC/Mac) in January this year – but now it looks like the game will be expanding to PlayStation Vita (and PS4) very soon.

Promising hand-drawn art/animations, a deep combat system, and an epic player-influenced story drawn from Viking lore, Stoic Games’ strategic RPG The Banner Saga is officially on its way to our favourite portable console in the Spring of 2015.

Are you excited yet, Vitafans? 😉

    I’ll buyt just for the artwork,

  • Lester Paredes

    Yay! I’ll gladly take this.

    The game looks pretty damn sweet from the vids I’ve seen. Great to hear it’s on it’s way to the Vita.

    So excited about this. I just love the artwork and the setting and I was really sad when I realized it was for PC only…I just can bring myself to play games – except WOW – on my PC…>_<

  • Nonscpo

    Out of curiosity how well did it do on PC?

      It was a OK I think.

      The only thing that I didn’t like about it was that it made me feel that I am playing unfinished game. Truth to be said it is just first part of trilogy… and the second part as I know was already announced few days ago. Oh and lots of choices options are pretty much pointless. Game is good… but won’t make me buy it again.

      It would definitly be better if they would announce both 1 and 2 part coming to PlayStation. At this point Banner Saga 2 really should be released day-1 on Vita and PS4 with PC version. If they won’t do it… than I think that it would be pointless to buy Banner Saga for Vita.

      I mean… if this game will be released in Spring of 2015 on PS than it would mean that people had to wait over a year for a port of just one episode of game. If people will be forced to wait for next parts as much time as they did for first part… than it means that…. most probably 2nd part will be released at late 2016 and thir part in early 2018 (more or less).

      So yeah… but again… game is good… but personally I think that it is just better to buy it on PC that way you will be sure that you will be able to see whole trilogy.

    Loved the look of this, but hate iOS games so resisted.

    Any news recently??

    Kind reminds me of Rainbow Moon gameplay.
