, Seattle game developer 17-BIT
has announced that Skulls of the Shogun
, a mashup of turn-based tactics and arcade action, will be launched via Steam as Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition
. In Skulls of the Shogun, players control General Akamoto, a mighty warrior stabbed in the back on the eve of his greatest battle. Washing up on the shores of the Afterlife, it's up to him and a ragtag army to shake things up and claim the rightful title of Shogun... of the Dead.
Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition features the full campaign and multiplayer modes from the original game, while adding a challenging brand-new four-chapter episode that takes place after the original game's ending. This episode offers a new protagonist and a new unit type, the Tanuki, who confounds enemies with teleport spells and nonstop taunts.
Players will also find all of the multiplayer functionality from the original release, including 6 new multiplayer levels, making for a total of 36 battlefields. Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition supports real-time multiplayer over Steam, hotseat support, and asynchronous multiplayer modes that allow players to take turns at their leisure. Multiplayer matchups now reward players as well, with a new progression system that allows players to gain experience points, rank up, and unlock emblems. The asynchronous "Skulls Anywhere" mode is designed to be forward-compatible, so future releases of Skulls of the Shogun will play with each other regardless of hardware platform.
