Rejoice Banner Saga fans, and cheers to Stoic Entertainment for a successful end to their Kickstarter program.
Banner Saga 3 reached its initial funding target with an overwhelming victory. The 40-day campaign reached a grand total of $416,986, more than double its original prime goal of $200,000. Four out of five of its stretch goals succeeded, adding extra content to the game. Such will include Playable Dredge, a new Survival Mode, Ubin added as a combat character and new game mode Eternal Arena.
Banner Saga 3 will complete the epic Viking Age inspired fantasy story, as this part will end the series as a trilogy. The third promises more of the great hand-drawn animation and designs, inspired by the great artistic works of Don Bluth, Ralph Bakshi, and Eyvind Earle. The gameplay style will continue its turn-based combat style strategy format, much like the Final Fantasy Tactics, Disgaea, and Shining Force classic games.
The trailer below, as seen on its Kickstarter page, teases more…
The game release date is not yet announced, through the Kickstarter page projects December 2018. Like the first two games of the series, the 3rd will likely reach multiple gaming platforms.
