Here’s one that slipped under the radar amongst the chaos of E3. Skulls of Shogun, a turn-based strategy title from developer 17-BIT, has been confirmed by Microsoft alongside an amusing new trailer.
17-BIT call the game an “invigorating cocktail of 1960's-flavored sorcery and strategy. Washing up on the shores of the afterlife, players meet and join forces with vibrant ghost-samurai warriors, magical animal-monks, and mustachioed samurai generals on the way to capture the Skulls of the Shogun!
“With its roots in classic turn-based strategy gaming, Skulls of the Shogun retains depth and adds a smooth, simple interface that makes it accessible and enjoyable even to players new to the genre. Players immerse themselves in battle with fun and unique gameplay features amidst lush, eerie environments.”
The game brings 4-player local and networked multiplayer and will hit Xbox Live Arcade, Windows 8, and Windows Phone simultaneously. No release date or price just yet. Looks fun! Check out the trailer below.
