Redefining a Genre: Skulls of the Shogun Aims to Add Accessibility; Keep Depth

"Skulls of the Shogun is a turn based strategy title. Players take on the role of a Samurai General who was betrayed by one of his closest allies and slain in the moment of his greatest victory.

I love the art style, even if I'm not entirely sold on the turn based aspect. That said, I'll definitely give it a run for its money next spring...

Agreed, art looks solid.

I love the Japanese feel...

Nice article. I agree on the art style, disagree on the turn based. I'm still a board gamer, so pretty used to that type of game.

I'm a huge advance wars guy so I'll definitely check this out...

I'm not a big turn based fan, but this does look like a lot of fun.

Art is beautiful! This game is definitely on my radar when it drops on PSN or iPhone/iPad even though I'm not the biggest fan of RTS'...

Just heard Jake Kazdal CEO of the dev company (Haunted Temple Studios) talk on 8-4 Play podcast mostly about his background in the industry, very interesting! Give it a go if you're interested in the game.

His background is so nuts. He's done a lot on a lot of major games...

Coheno3128d ago

Major games at major companies (Nintendo, Enix, Sega, EA)! He's practically been in every position in a company! Never heard about this before hearing the podcast and now I'm really looking foreward to it!
