Here is a synopsis of the game from a previous article:

Banner of the Maid is an SRPG (strategy role-playing game) taking place in an alternate, fantasy French Revolution. It has been widely applauded as one of the best titles in the genre for the year. It originally launched in May 2019 in China, followed by a fully localized English version in the West on February 14th. Its next step is to finally arrive on consoles. They released a mock-up image that shows what the Nintendo Switch version of the game may look like:

Banner of the Maid players will take on the role of young officer Pauline Bonaparte to lead her troops to victory. Her dynamic, turn-based battles will take place in the tricky political landscape of Paris. Pauline is not just an officer, but also a Maid (one of the fabled women who possess mysterious powers that can turn the tides of battle). Players will experience a deep story full of twists and fantasy, where the fate of the revolution rests on your shoulders.

You will lead your troops through dynamic environments including over 30 types of terrain like plains, cities, snowy mountains, and more. Your army will face changes in the weather, like fog and snow, which may force you to adapt your strategy. Your generals include over 30 rich characters, including historical figures such as Desaix, Murat and Lannes. They each have their own skills and backgrounds, which they can improve through experience. To uncover their stories, players will need to talk to them and gain their trust. That trust will help you reach your full potential, as you dive into quests and challenges to win political favor or funds to improve your army. However, your actions have consequences, so consider them carefully!
