Microsoft Picks Up Skulls of the Shogun

The spiritual successor to Advance Wars is coming before the end of the year.

If you've been bummed out by Nintendo ignoring Advance Wars the last few years, a savior has appeared through Skulls of the Shogun, which Gamasutra reports has been picked up by Microsoft.

Horray!

I've seen Skulls of the Shogun, looking better each time. It strikes the same wonderful balance between complexity and depth Advance Wars did, making strategy games accessible to people (like me) who don't usually care for strategy games.

All we know about a release date is sometime before the end of the year. Can't come soon enough.
