Game: The Banner Saga
Release: TBA 2015
Genre: Tactical RPG
The idea of holding The Banner Saga in your hands and utilising both PS Vita’s PlayStation controls and its touch surfaces while being able to move about freely in the real world is something we’re really keen on developing and seeing in action in 2015.
The Banner Saga is a game you might have heard of, as it was kickstarted with much success in 2012. Finally in 2014 it was released for PC and received high praise for its art, story and turn-based combat. In 2015 it will get a release for PS4 and PS Vita! The game itself is a tactical RPG set in a fantasy world heavily influenced by vikings and Norse mythology. This hand-painted viking world is for some reason falling apart, and heroes gather together to battle this ancient thread called The Dredge. You set out on a journey through the world by forming a caravan. You will need to manage this caravan, keep people fed and happy, while taking on quests and training your troops, and so on.
