One more piece of Banner Saga news. Not only does the Banner Saga kick off with episode 1 on the Nintendo Switch on May 17, it's going to apparently get the rest of the trilogy—episodes 2 and 3—when Banner Saga 3 launches in two months on July 24. My particular Banner Saga (the choices, the arms and armor, the special equipment, the starving) has been piecing itself together slowly since 2014. But if you've held off until now, and you happen to own a Switch, then you can get each episode much closer together. It's practically a Netflix binge.
So, having said that, here's one of the factions introduced in Banner Saga 2: the Horseborn. They're centaurs, basically, armed with spears and broken English. Canary is one of the yellow-haired representatives of the Horseborn. Not exactly sure why the video goes to such lengths as to describe her as "slender," because 1) it's obvious and 2) all the Horseborn are slender, so who cares, unless you're taking a weak stab at her sex appeal. But anyway. Great series. Weird thing for the video to point out, though.
More interestingly is the tribal infighting between the Horseborn clans. I have to admit, they've been acting suspish ever since they were introduced in the second episode. I'm keeping my eye on them. I'm also taking advantage of their horse-speed on the battlefield, too, but I'm keeping my eye on them nonetheless.
To recap, May 17, Banner Saga 1 is on the Switch. July 24, the Banner Saga 3 (plus a trilogy boxed set) is on PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch.
