We have been waiting for the Skulls of Shogun game for a while now. The developers of Skulls of Shogun spoke to the Verge and revealed amongst other interesting titbits that their game will feature asynchronous play and also have cross-platform play.
The game will allow players on different platforms to play with each other wirelessly and over 3G networks.
The developers said that the asynchronous play means a player can start a game on their Xbox 360 and continue it on their phone or tablet, allowing them to play the game anywhere, any time. The turn-based multiplayers allows for up to four players at a time. The cross-platform play also applies to the single player campaign where players can begin a game on one platform and continue it on another.
The strategy game will be available on Xbox LIVE and has been optimised for the Xbox 360, Windows 8 PC, Windows Phone, and Windows 8 tablets. The game supports multi-touch, gamepads, and keyboard/mouse interfaces.
The entire game, which includes a 15-20 hour single player campaign, 20 in-depth levels, 30 multiplayer maps with dedicated two, three, and four player maps. Shadows of Shogun’s release is planned to coincide with the launch of Windows 8.
