Developer Azure Flame Studio, along with publisher CE-Asia, are excited to announce that Banner of the Maid will get a Steam summer sale discount prior to launching on consoles. The SRPG will celebrate the summer sale with a discount of up to 30%. It’s DLC, The Oriental Pirate, will also get a 20% discount according to the press release. Just a few days before this announcement, they revealed that Banner of the Maid will be coming to Xbox One, Switch, and PlayStation 4 sometime later this year. It has already seen success on Steam and in China.

 

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!

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
