In an announcement that came yesterday, developer Stoic proclaimed that their Viking strategy role-playing game The Banner Saga would be adapted into a miniatures-based board game.

Banner Saga: Warbands will be a collaborative effort between Stoic, board game developer MegaCon Games, and publisher Versus Evil. Though details are scant, a website has been published, and a Kickstarter is forthcoming.

The Banner Saga was title initially funded through Kickstarter and released in early 2014 on PC.  The title garnered enough praise and commercial success to warrant a sequel which is slated to be released in 2016.
