Sidequest was provided a copy of The Banner Saga for the Nintendo Switch in exchange for a fair and honest view.

I played Banner Saga when it originally came out for PC, but I never got that far in it—as much as I love turn-based strategy games, they don’t mesh with PCs for me. I’m a fidgety gamer—I move around, I pace, I bounce on the balls of my feet. Since PC gaming typically requires time spent immobile in a chair, and doubly so for strategy games, it’s the kind of thing I can only engage in sporadically, at best. I like turn-based strategy, though, a lot, so when I heard it was being ported to the extremely mobile Switch, I jumped at the chance to review it.
