The Banner Saga 2 is a Viking inspired role-playing strategy game continuing the legacy and story of original title.

Continue your journey soon after the climactic events of The Banner Saga.

The choices you made in the first game will affect who is alive and who is dead in this exciting sequel.

As the world continues to crumble around you, only one bastion of hope remains, but getting there will require strong leadership, hard sacrifices, influencing new heroes, and, as always, sound strategy in combat.


The Banner Saga 2 for Nintendo Switch will launch on Thursday 7th June, 2018.

“We are proud to launch Banner Saga 2 on Nintendo Switch, hot on the heels of the launch of the first game, The Banner Saga last month.  There has never been a better time to get into this awarding winning series. Strategy and RPG Nintendo Switch fans will get the opportunity to play through the entire saga, from start to finish, this Summer when the third and final chapter Banner Saga 3 releases.  Playing this game on the Nintendo Switch is truly a joy, allowing you to play whenever and wherever you can.” said Steve Escalante, General Manager of Versus Evil.

Key Features:

  • The epic Viking saga continues on – beautifully 2D hand drawn combat sequences and animations are further enhanced with special effects, once again accompanied by an evocative score from Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory
  • Player choice that continues to drive your narrative – your story continues based on choices made in the first game as well as hard choices you have to make in this one.
  • New Characters and a New Race – continue your epic journey interacting with new characters and a new race, the Horseborn.
  • Improved Strategic combat with consequences – improved, more strategic battle boards enhance combat and permanent loss of characters will still weigh heavy on your mind long after the battle is over.
  • The journey is as important as battle – your role in building and managing your caravan as you travel the vast landscape is critical to not only your own survival but the survival of an entire civilization.
