Skulls of the Shogun releasing on January 30

12:30 PM on 01.10.2013

For XBLA, Windows 8, Surface, and Windows Phone

Freaking finally. We've been looking forward to Skulls of the Shogun for literally years. Well the wait is finally almost over as developer 17-Bit has announced the game will be launching on January 30, 2013. It'll be available on Xbox Live Arcade (1200 MS Points), Windows 8 ($14.99), Windows Surface ($14.99), and Windows Phone ($6.99) all on the same day.

Skulls of the Shogun is a wonderful strategy game featuring a 15-hour plus long campaign, and up to four-player local and online multiplayer. Plus, all four versions will feature asynchronous play, so you can pick up your single-player campaign on any version you own. That goes for the multipalyer too, as you can play against people on any version of the game. Sadly there's no cross-buy options, but there might be something in the future.
