Skulls of the Shogun, developer 17-bit's strategy game set in the samurai afterlife, will launch Jan. 30 at discounted prices "for a limited time" on Windows platforms, according to a press release from the developer.
The Windows 8 and Surface versions will launch for $9.99 (regularly $14.99) in the Microsoft Store, while the Windows Phone version will launch at $4.99 (regularly $6.99). Skulls of the Shogun will also be available for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15) on Xbox 360.
"We've heard from the community that they want to get Skulls of the Shogun not only on their Xbox 360, but on all of their Microsoft devices," said 17-BIT founder and CEO, Jake Kazdal. "By discounting the Windows 8, Windows Surface, and Windows Phone versions of Skulls, we hope everyone can dive into the Skulls Anywhere asynchronous single-player and multiplayer gameplay."
The game will be the the first to include asynchronous multiplayer and cross-platform play between the Xbox 360 and other platforms, which Kazdal explained to Polygon in an interview last year.
