Signs of the Sojourner, a unique and charming deck-building game, is coming to consoles in March.

Instead of using a deck of cards to slay trolls or explore a massive dungeon, players have to chain card combos together to navigate conversations and connect to other people. Signs of the Sojourner was originally released in May 2020.

Signs of the Sojourner will be released on PlayStation 4 on March 17, Nintendo Switch on March 18, and Xbox One and Xbox Series X on March 19. This new versions of the game also add five new characters. The new characters will also arrive on Windows PC and Mac for those who have already purchased the game on those platforms.

There are few games quite like Signs of the Sojourner, which puts players in the role of a young traveler who takes up their mother’s business shortly after she passes away. You end up working her mother’s old routes, talking to her colleagues, and connecting with both new people and old friends. The card game mechanic means that a lot of the game’s dialogue is implied, not explicitly told, and the end result is authentic and touching.
