Don’t let death slow you down. Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition is bringing undead action to Nintendo Switch consoles on 11 July.
We’re dead excited to hear the news that Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition is down and out yet. The hilarious Samurai inspired turn-based tactical game is due to raise hell on Nintendo’s mobile powerhouse. Developed by 17-BIT, this unusual take on the tactical genre finds players taking on the mantle of recently deceased General Akamoto. After being stabbed in the back on the eve of his greatest battle the general doesn’t seem to take well to permanent retirement. Instead, the cartoon corpse brings together a range of otherworldly forces in order to capture the Skulls of The Shogun.
Resurrected And Improved
The original iteration of Skulls of the Shogun came out in around 2013 invading a whole plethora of formats, even down to the Windows Phone. Skulls of The Shogun: Bone-A-Fide edition brings a new version of this experience to Nintendo Switch with an extra brand-new episode, the new Tanuki Monk, and a heaping helping of extra features. If you think you are up to the task of commanding an undead army across 4 underworld areas, blitzing across 24 levels in an epic single-player campaign, or just battling up to 4 players at once on spectacular multiplayer maps then get your mobile command center ready.
Skulls of The Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition is available to pre-order right now from the Nintendo eShop. Publishers 612 Games and Golem Entertainment have confirmed pre-orders will grab a massive 50% discount on the RRP. While I don’t normally go in for pre-orders, that is seriously tempting for a game that has already impressed on other consoles.
