You probably read English, but The Banner Saga's now in six new languages

It's an educated guess based on the fact that you're reading this

By most accounts, The Banner Saga is a dark and emotional journey that evokes strong feelings of vulnerability. Now, a whole new diverse group of people will be able to experience that uneasiness, as the game has been localized for six different languages.

Available for PC and Mac, The Banner Saga has been translated to Spanish, French, German, Polish, Portuguese, and Russian. The wave of language support comes as a promise that Stoic Games made when it Kickstarted the game back in 2012.

This isn't the only moves that Stoic is making to bring The Banner Saga to new audiences. It will be coming to tablets this summer for those that like the personal feel of touching the characters whose lives you may be destroying.
