Less than twenty seconds into the trailer for Tale of Ronin [official site], I nodded my head and made a note: “The Banner Saga but Bushido”. I made another note at the end, which is even simpler: “HANDSOME”. The first note is speculative. I don’t know enough about Tale of Ronin to say whether or not it’ll be similar to Stoic’s series, but the scenes of the ronin leading a train of characters across the screen brought Banner’s similar shots to mind immediately. It’s similarly stunning as well, though the art style is very different.
