The Banner Saga set for iPad and Android

Viking-themed RPG expands to tablets with touch and swipe controls

The Banner Saga, a cult RPG built by former BioWare developers, is being ported to both iOS and Android.


Texas based indie studio Stoic, which shipped The Banner Saga on PC in January, was given an IGF nomination in the field of visual arts for its work on the project.

Publishing partner Versus Evil has not yet officially announced the iOS and Android editions, but games site Polygon claims the new editions have been built exclusively for tablets. It is claimed the tablet version will be no different from the desktop edition, though controls have been rebuilt for touch an swipe inputs.

A release date is not yet available.

Stoic was founded in 2012 from three developers formerly working at Mass Effect outfit BioWare.
