Skulls of the Shogun just keeps getting better and better. The developers have now confirmed that the game will indeed have the ability to allow different platforms to play with each other, using wireless connection or 3G networks. Thanks to asynchronous play, it’s also possible to, for example, start the game on your Xbox 360 and move the same game to your Windows Phone and continue from there. Skulls of the Shogun is the first Xbox 360 game to support this feature.
The platforms supporting cross-play are: Windows Phone, Windows 8, Windows 8 Tablets and Xbox 360. Game sharing is not supported, so you’ll have to get a new copy for each of the platforms you want to use cross-play on.
Skulls of the Shogun will be available this Fall, as a launch title for Windows 8, also released simultaneously for Windows Phone and Xbox Live Arcade.
