Coming close behind the Switch launch of the original Banner Saga, Banner Saga 2 is set to release for the platform on June 7.

Banner Saga 2 picks up where the original game left off, tasking you once again with navigating tactical battles in order to ensure that your clan survives the grim circumstances they're in.
