The tactical turn-based strategy game and Kickstarter success story The Banner Saga has now released for iOS devices.
The game, which launched on PC earlier this year to much acclaim, has been adapted for touch controls on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Considering its background as a turn-based game, it looks like it should translate well to touch screen devices much like XCOM: Enemy Unknown did last year.
“Since our earliest prototype, we designed The Banner Saga from the ground up with tablet and mobile devices in mind,” said John Watson, Technical Director at Stoic Studios in an official statement. “With its epic storyline, touch screen turn based strategic combat and hand painted landscapes that harken back to the golden age of animation, we are excited to now bring The Banner Saga to a whole new community of players”.
If you haven’t checked The Banner Saga out yet and you love turn-based combat and norse inspired fantasy stories I highly suggest taking a look now that is even more accessible. You can pick it up on the App Store for only $9.99.
