Skulls of the Shogun Bone-A-Fide Edition hits Steam in July with new maps, mini-campaign, monk and more

Skulls of the Shogun, developer 17-bit's turn-based strategy game set in the samurai afterlife, is headed to Steam as the Bone-A-Fide Edition with new maps, a new monk, a new mini-campaign and more, according to the game's official website.

Beyond the original campaign, which was released for Windows 8, Windows Phone and Xbox Live Arcade, the Bone-A-Fide Edition will include a mini-campaign called the Forgotten Isles, which will "challenge even die-hard skull-munchers" with four new levels. Rather than resetting like in the original campaign, troops will carry over through each level, demanding a long-term strategy.

The Steam version will also include six multiplayer maps based on the Forgotten Isles, a new monk called the Tanuki (pictured above) whose bells and spells "focus on shifting the battlefield around and disrupting enemies' plans in the most mischievous way possible," developer commentary achievements and Steam Trading Cards. For the full rundown of new features, check out the official Skulls of the Shogun fact sheet.

According to its Steam listing, Skulls of the Shogun will be available in July, and you can pre-order the Windows PC game for $11.99, a 20 percent discount off of its normal price of $14.99. For more on the game, be sure to read Polygon's review.
