We’re back and un-jet lagged from PAX East, where the Shogun made his appearance in near-final playable form! Much thanks to all the awesome show attendees who kept our demo stations busy for all three days of the show. You guys are an invaluable source of feedback, and we were delighted to see the wide variety of tactics that were popping up in the dozens of multiplayer matches that went down; some of the last-minute turnaround victories we saw were things of legend.

If you want to check out a match being played, look no further than Kotaku’s playthrough video, which features Jake K battling Colin in a back-and-forth battle for the ages. We also slapped together a quick teaser trailer for the show:

And as if that wasn’t enough, at the very same time our QA Guru Isaac Dudley was running a full Skulls tournament back in Seattle at the anime celebration known as Sakura-Con. Congrats to winner Frank, who took home the victory (along with a sweet samurai blade in a one-of-a-kind Skulls-branded showcase).
