ABOUT SKULLS OF THE SHOGUN
Skulls of the Shogun is an invigorating cocktail of
1960’s-flavored sorcery and strategy. Washed 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 in
a 10-to-15-hour single-player campaign.
Skulls of the Shogun also features up to four-player local
and online multiplayer battles.
Also, for the first time ever, players will be able to challenge
their friends, fight their way through online multiplayer battles,
and even take their single-player campaign on the road
asynchronously — whether they’re playing on Xbox 360,
Windows 8, Surface, or Windows Phone. Called
Skulls Anywhere, this cross-platform gameplay has never
been done before on Microsoft platforms and is available at launch
on all four launch platforms!
Skulls of the Shogun is localized in English, French, Italian,
German, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Brazilian
Portuguese, and Russian.
