Skulls of the Shogun releasing on many devices at the end of January

Developer 17-BIT’s Skulls of the Shogun is quickly nearing release, and it’s doing so on an unprecedented amount of Microsoft platforms simultaneously.

The game will be available on Xbox Live Arcade, Windows Phone 7, Microsoft Surface and Windows 8 when it releases on January 30. It also features cross-play multiplayer across all of its versions.

“Skulls Anywhere is an asynchronous multiplayer mode that lets players take turns independently of each other (sending turns back and forth whenever they want),” said the game’s website, “playing against players on all the launch platforms.”

Skulls of the Shogun will run you 1200 Microsoft points, or $15. Be sure to check out out hands-on coverage from PAX East 2012 for more.
