Skulls of the Shogun gets January release date

Samurai-themed turn-based strategy title is scheduled for a worldwide multiplatform debut with cross-platform functionality.

Upcoming indie turn-based strategy game Skulls of the Shogun launches worldwide on January 30, developer 17-BIT has announced.

The game will launch simultaneously on Xbox Live Arcade, Windows 8, Surface, and Windows Phone, but the title will support cross-platform play. The XBLA version will be available for 1,200 Microsoft points, while Windows 8 and Microsoft Surface counterparts will sell for $14.99, with the Windows Phone version being $6.99. Skulls of the Shogun sets turn-based strategy against a classic Japanese backdrop.

Beyond the 15-hour single-player campaign, the game will boast four-player local and online multiplayer modes. The Skulls Everywhere mode will allow for gameplay between any version of the game. "We're ecstatic we could bring Skulls to all four of Microsoft's platforms, and bring them all together with cross-platform functionality," said Jake Kazdal, 17-BIT founder and CEO.

I don't have Windows 8, Surface, a Windows Phone or an Xbox 360.. so that means I can't play it lol... but that doesn't really matter as I have PLENTY of top games yet to play... one of them 'Shogun 2: Total War' Muahahahaha~!!!

Please come to the PS3. We need more turn based strategy. Maybe if it's popular enough on the 360...
