The fast-paced, turn-based, strategy game Skulls of the Shogun is Microsoft’s first modern cross-platform game. It can be played on all of Microsoft’s platforms. Never before has a Microsoft game been cross-platform at its launch. You can enjoy Skulls of the Shogun as you switch between your Xbox 360, Windows Phone, Windows 8 PC, or Microsoft Surface tablet.

The Story behind Skulls of the Shogun
A shadowy figure stabs General Akamoto in the back thus crushing the tactical genius’s dreams of becoming Shogun. After arriving at the Shores of the Dead, the General assembles a ragtag misfit army and sets off with the aim of battling his way through the four seasons of the afterlife. If Akamoto could not earn the title of Shogun in life, he will earn it in the afterlife. He will become Shogun of the Dead.


Skulls of the Shogun Cross-Platform Gameplay

As mentioned above, Skulls of the Shogun is a fast-paced, turn based, strategy game. You are put in charge of various units and you must use your strategy skills to move them, issue orders, attack and win battles. In single player mode you will get to enjoy a 15-hour campaign that will put you in charge of vibrant ghost-samurai warriors, magical animal-monks, and mustachioed samurai generals. In multiplayer mode you will get to enjoy four-player local and online multiplayer battles.

The game is available for all of Micorsoft’s platforms, meaning that you will be able to switch between devices and continue to play the game. This cross-platform functionality allows you to play Skulls of the Shogun on your PC, Windows Phone, Surface Tablet, or Xbox.

“After three and a half years, Skulls of the Shogun has been released into the wild!” says 17-BIT Founder and CEO, Jake Kazdal. “We’re ecstatic we could bring Skulls to all four of Microsoft’s platforms, and bring them all together with cross-platform functionality. We appreciate the excitement and patience by all the Skulls of the Shogun fans, and we here at 17-BIT believe the wait will be well worth it.”
