Shadow Tactics: Blade of the Shogun


Mimimi Games and publisher Daedalic give a fresh insight into real-time tactics in the first gameplay trailer for Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun – Aiko’s Choice. The independent expansion for Shadow Tactics: Blade of the Shogun will be released for PC in December 2021 and will once again take players through Japan during the Edo period.

The main game is not required for the expansion, but the manufacturers recommend playing the first missions before “Aiko’s Choice”.

“There they accompany Kunoichi adept Aiko and her companions on a quest to face their past. (…) In addition, the return of a crowd favorite is announced. Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun – Aiko’s Choice follows one of the main characters from the main game – the Kunoichi adept Aiko.She is a master of camouflage and distracts opponents as a disguised geisha.

Aiko thought she had left her old life behind. But her former sensei, the shrewd spy master Lady Chiyo, returns to challenge her. Together with her friends, a deadly group of assassins, she goes on a hunt for the ghosts of her past.

The expansion contains three main missions in completely new environments, as well as three shorter intermediate missions. As in the main game, players control a team of deadly specialists and sneak past dozens of enemies in the shadows. They have to decide how to infiltrate hidden camps in the forest or living towns from the Edo period. Players lay traps, use poison and distract the enemy – or they bypass the enemy completely. Every move needs to be well thought out. Creative tactics are necessary to make enemies disappear, successfully complete each mission, and understand Aiko’s past.
