This week, Xbox LIVE Arcade is just one of three outlets you can play 17-BIT Studios' first game under their new name. The Shoguns will invade via Windows 8 and Windows Phone as well. Is the cartoonish genre-bender enough to warrant your purchase on any system?

Skulls of the Shogun
Developer: 17-BIT
Publisher: Microsoft Game Studios
Price: 1200 MSP
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.


We've got the full list of Skulls of the Shogun achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
