PC tactical RPG game The Banner Saga is coming to tablets this summer. Publisher Versus Evil announced it for iOS and Android devices.

Polygon reports that the controls have been revised for switch and touch inputs, but otherwise it will remain identical to the PC and Mac version. A price and release date have not been announced.

The Banner Saga received a positive reception on PC, but it received more attention for a bizarre legal dispute. King.com, the makers of Candy Crush Saga, opposed the Banner Saga trademark due to a similarity in the name. The dispute was later resolved amicably. If you'd rather just pick up the PC version now, it's part of the Steam Summer Sale for half-off today.

          I played a bit of Banner Saga: Factions quite some time ago, is the game basically more of that with story and other stuff? If so I really enjoyed it.

            I didn't play Factions but from what I played of the main game it's very story / dialog heavy. The animation is so gorgeous.
