By  •  News

Kuno Interactive announced via Twitter this week that they’ll be releasing Defense Technica on XBLA and PSN on October 9th. Steam users can download the game on October 10th.

Who are Kuno Interactive? They are a new developer from Seoul South Korea and on their site it mentions that they either are working on or have released such games as Moro Moro Train and Mutant Defense; both titles are for the PSN. A quick search of the internet did not yield any results for either game.

Very little is out on the internet about Defense Technica. Below is a a short paragraph that was posted on Xbox.com and clearly written in broken English:

“New strong man Defense Technica high-quality 3D Tower Defense! Defense Technica you with a great balance and strategic system to protect the core with a rapidity judgment and beautiful graphics, It is a defense game of the best thing to defend the core effectively against the enemy coming to attack is an object.”

Skulls of the Shogun review (XBLA)

Skulls of the Shogun was developed by 17-BIT and published by Microsoft Studios. It was released January 30, 2013 for 1200 MSP. A copy was provided for review purposes.

Skulls of the Shogun is a samurai-themed, turn-based strategy game inspired by Nintendo’s Advance Wars series. Skulls players must guide the newly deceased General Akamoto and his band of undead warriors across the four seasons of the samurai afterlife. Along with a solid single-player campaign the game — which was simultaneously released on XBLA, Windows 8, Windows Phone and Windows Surface — comes bundled with the ability to play online and offline multiplayer skirmishes along with a much-hyped asynchronous mode, allowing matches to be played across all four platforms.

Throughout your journey through the afterlife, General Akamoto is assisted by a small team comprising of Archers (ranged attacks), Infantry (close-quarters combat) and Cavalry (scouts). Things may initially look bleak for our mustachioed hero, but further help can be gained by haunting shrines to summon extra resources in exchange for rice, or as the game progresses, by summoning elusive animal monks bringing advanced magic to your troop. You can also upgrade your comrades to a demon status by having them chow down on the skulls of the enemies they’ve slain.
