Set in Feudal Japan, Skulls of the Shogun: Bone-A-Fide Edition sees players take on the role of the recently deceased General Akamoto, Japan’s mightiest Samurai General who is stabbed in the back by an unknown assailant on the eve of his greatest battle. Players must successfully command Akamoto and his army of soldiers through the four regions of the Samurai afterlife.

This is the second big offering in the last several months from Publishers 612 Games and Golem Entertainment. Earlier this spring the firms announced they were bringing another of their popular, award-winning games to Nintendo Switch as well. GALAK-Z: The Void: Deluxe Edition  joined Nintendo Switch in late March.

With these two offerings alone the game makers are proving that their games can play with the Nintendo big boys.
