|Review: The Banner Saga (Switch eShop) via Nintendo Life
If you happen to love Norse mythology or epic fantasy stories full of consequence and deft storytelling, then look no further than The Banner Saga. This is a beautifully crafted game that uses its intriguing cast, gripping tale and absolutely stunning artwork and soundtrack to transport you to a world filled with plenty of danger and surprises. The turn-based strategic battles might not be equally as thrilling to everyone who plays this, and the interface in this part of the game can be a bit clunky at times, but this doesn't detract too much from the collective offering.

The tale that this first chapter in The Banner Saga weaves will have you gripped from start to finish. The player is left to exist in a world that has been meticulously crafted, whether that be the breathtaking art direction, the riveting efforts at world-building or the gameplay mechanics that underpin the experience.

Now available on the Nintendo Switch, The Banner Saga is the first part of a trilogy that lays the foundation for a great story, a complex turn-based tactical-RPG and a wealth of content. It's an excellent pick for fans of the genre who are not afraid of the slow pace of the game.

|The folks on the discord gave me a good rundown on this game, and I think I’ve been convinced to add it to my wishlist. Norse mythology has always fascinated me, and be combat system sounds unique and refreshing. If I ever work my way down to it on my wishlist, I’ll report back with my thoughts.|

|I'm looking forward to eventually picking this up. I was an original backer of the kickstarter but my PC crapped out before it could release and I've been a console player ever since. Its one of my great gaming regrets and I'm excited to rectify that mistake soon.
