Publisher Daedalic Entertainment and developer Mimimi Games today announced a standalone expansion for the award-winning and fan-favorite stealth tactics game Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. In Aiko’s Choice, players return to the beautiful world of Shadow Tactics, set in Japan in the early Edo period. You take on the role of Kunoichi adept Aiko, who goes on the hunt for a diabolical enemy from her past together with her friends, all of whom are deadly assassins. A copy of the main game is not required to play the standalone expansion. However, it is recommended to complete the first missions of Shadow Tactics: Baldes of the Shogun before players jump into Aiko’s Choice. The extension will be available for PC at the end of 2021.
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun – Aiko’s Choice focuses on one of the main game protagonists: the Kunoichi adept Aiko. She is a master of disguise and deceives opponents with her geisha disguise. Although Aiko thought she had left her old life behind, a new enemy from her past appears from the shadows and challenges her. With her friends, a group of deadly assassins, she goes on a hunt for the ghost from her past …
Just like in the main game, players take control of a team of deadly professionals who sneak past dozens of enemies in the shadows. The choice of tactic will determine success or failure when it comes to infiltrating enemy camps in the wilderness or in busy cities from the Edo period. Traps, poisons or distraction are the tools of an assassin – and every mission can be mastered without any contact with the enemy. Only those who carefully plan each movement will find their own ingenious tactics to eliminate opponents, fulfill tricky missions and uncover Aiko’s past.
