After years in development, the turn-based strategy game Skulls of the Shogun has finally escaped the doors of developer 17-BIT and appeared on Xbox LIVE Marketplace!

I personally know very little about Skulls of the Shogun (other than its similarities to Advance Wars on Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS), so let us find out about the game together with an official description, pricing information, screenshots and a keen trailer:

“Skulls of the Shogun is an award-winning genre mashup of turn-based tactics and arcade action, featuring 8-10 hours of epic (but tongue-in-cheek) story-driven campaign, and multiplayer modes for 2-4 players.

“With fast-paced tactical elements, intense action, and eye-catching graphics and animation, 17-BIT is getting back to the pick-up-and-play fun of previous generations of gaming, where the depth unfolds as you play.”

Does Skulls of the Shogun tickle your fancy? Appeal to your peeled eyeballs? Get your motor running? Scratch an itch? OK I’ll stop now.

There is of course a demo available for Skulls of the Shogun, so let us know what you think of the game if you get a chance to try it out. Advance Wars-like? Don’t mind if I do!
