For those of you who don’t know Skulls of the Shogun is an upcoming turn-based strategy video game developed by 17-BIT. The game is inspired by Advance Wars and features turn-based combat between the undead samurai. Skulls of the Shogun is planned for a 2012 release on Xbox Live Arcade, Windows Phone and Windows 8.
17 Bit’s indie darling is looking better than ever in this new clip. The game should hit XBLA sometime in October courtesy of a publishing agreement with Microsoft.
Furthermore, a notable feature of this game is the cross play ability it offers across all three platforms. Developer, 17-bit—formerly known as Haunted Temple—made the announcement yesterday, along with a new trailer, which you can watch above.
Skulls of the Shogun was developed out of a desire to create a faster, more streamlined take on the turn-based strategy genre.
