The Banner Saga, the hit Kickstarter funded Viking RPG strategy title, will launch for PS4 and Xbox One on January 12, 2016, Stoic and publisher Versus Evil have announced.

The original game was funded on Kickstarter and has been released for PC and mobile devices.

"We have been working on porting Banner Saga to consoles for some time" said John Watson, founder and technical director at Stoic. "Porting the game certainly presented technical challenges that we needed to overcome, and gave us an opportunity to redesign the user experience for console controllers. We have managed to merge the story and gameplay from Banner Saga with a refined controller interface to make it a very enjoyable console gaming experience."

The Banner Saga 2 is also scheduled for release in 2016 on PC, Xbox One and PS4.
