Skulls of the Shogun is launching simultaneously on XBLA, Windows 8 on PC, Windows Surface and Windows Phone on January 30. With a launch platform lineup like that, we're not even going to complain that it didn't come out alongside Windows 8 as 17-Bit teased last year.
Skulls of the Shogun will run 1200 MS Points ($15) for XBLA, Windows 8 and Surface, and $7 for Windows Phone via the Windows Phone Marketplace. The game has up to four-player local or online multiplayer, and for the first time on Microsoft platforms, it supports asynchronous, cross-platform gameplay. What's more, it will be localized in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Brazilian Portuguese and Russian. A little extra time goes a long way, apparently.
