The Banner Saga's road to a console release has been a bit rocky, but the development team at Stoic has some good news: the excellent viking epic lands on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this coming January 12th. That's pretty soon! In fact, the team's efforts to make sure this isn't just a quick and dirty console port are what's caused the sequel's delay from its originally promised 2015 launch. And actually, this porting process has worked to get the developers familiar with console hardware for future projects.

It's something publisher Versus Evil mentions specifically in a prepared statement, no less. "With this latest achievement [the console port], the Stoic team is able to work on more platforms and reach more customers with its games and technology," general manager Steve Escante says. "Looking ahead at what this could mean for Banner Saga 2 gets really exciting." For an idea of what it'll look like on your TV next year, check out the gallery up above.
