The Banner Saga 3, the conclusion to indie studio Stoic’s epic trilogy of choice-based strategy RPGs is here, and there’s no doubt in my mind that hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people are going to be playing it obsessively over the next few weeks. And given the fact that The Banner Saga 3 is also on the Nintendo Switch, the series’ simultaneous launch debut on any Nintendo platform, it’s also going to invite a host of new players.

But how does the game run on the Nintendo Switch? Well, we recently interviewed the team at Stoic, and asked a number of questions about the game, one of which was about the resolution settings for The Banner Saga 3 on the Switch. Stoic co-founder and the game’s technical director John Watson told GamingBolt that the game will run at 1080p when docked, and at 720p while being played in handheld mode.

Questions about the frame-rate remained unanswered, but considering the fact that this is an isometric turn based RPG, I’d say frame-rates aren’t all that important in this particular case anyway. In the same interview, Watson also told us about the resolution and frame-rate targets for the game on the PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, and Xbox One X. Read more on that here. If you want to read the full interview – and I suggest you do so, it’s quite an interesting read – head on over here.

The Banner Saga 3 is out now on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Our review for the game should be live soon, so stay tuned to find out what we think of the game.
