Skulls of the Shogun released for Windows 8, RT, WP8 and Xbox 360

It's taken a long time but developer 17-bit Games has finally launched its Microsoft platform exclusive turn-based strategy game Skulls of the Shogun. It's the first such game that has been released for Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows Phone 8 and the Xbox 360 platforms, and all of them have cross-platform multiplayer.

The game itself is a cartoony-like Japanese themed game with both a single player campaign as well as support for up to four players in multiplayer. In a post on the game's official website,17-bit Games co-founder Jake Kazdal stated:

The extra time we took converting the game to Windows 8 and implementing all the awesome cross-platform functionality also gave us a chance to really polish all the content to a blinding sheen, and we are super happy with the final game. Most small studios like us are never given the opportunity to go back and touch up what was an almost finished game, and man what a difference it makes.

The game has some special launch pricing tiers. The Windows 8 and Windows RT versions are currently priced at $9.99 (normally $14.99), while the Windows Phone 8 version is $4.99 at the moment (normally $6.99). The Xbox 360 version is priced at 1200 Microsoft points.

I have Windows 8, a WP8 Lumia 920 and an Xbox - all using the same Microsoft account.
I would definitely appreciate it if Microsoft came up with a pricing system that allows you pay once but access across these multiple devices.

That would be nice. I don't see it happening though. I'll be picking it up on Windows 8 and WP8.

Would be nice if they would throw you a bone as Sony does with some of their PSN purchases that will work on both PS3 and Vita.

I'd be surprised if it doesn't happen at some point, but we'll see.
