The Banner Saga coming to consoles in January

The Banner Saga will be making its way to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the New Year. It is scheduled for release on consoles on January 13th, 2016.

While the launch trailer doesn't indicate how the control scheme has been adapted from mouse to gamepad, it shouldn't be too taxing. The Banner Saga is a turn-based strategy game, mixed with RPG and choose-your-own-adventure elements.

The Banner Saga was initially released on PC and has since been ported to mobile. Console versions were also being worked on, but the company in charge of the port folded. Another company since picked up the port, which is now ready to launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The casualty of this incident is the Vita port. Stoic's John Watson explained, "Our initial budget for porting to Vita has been burned by essentially having to pay twice for the console ports. Once we can recover the substantial costs of initial console porting, we can consider our strategy to move forward with Vita."

Meanwhile, the developer is hard at work on The Banner Saga 2 which is targeting a Q1 2016 release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
