17-BIT has said it’s “shooting for a day one release,” with Windows 8 for Skulls of Shogun. Microsoft announced yesterday Windows 8 would release on October 26.

“The plan is to sim-ship on Win 8 desktop, and both versions of Surface, Windows Phone 7 and XBLA in the same week,” 17-bit’s Jake Kazdal told
. “We’re certainly shooting for day one release with Win 8, and it looks very likely, but nothing is set in stone yet.”

Last month, it was announced the turn-based strategy title would launch simultaneously on Xbox Live Arcade, Windows 8, Surface, and Windows Phone to allow for four-player cooperative play across the platforms.
