With Gamescom 2021 coming to a close, Mimimi Games has released the first gameplay trailer for Aiko’s Choice, the standalone expansion for its acclaimed stealth title Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. It showcases the entire team back together again for a new story that takes place during the base game. The expansion is out in December 2021.
Much of what players loved about the first game is intact, from Hayato’s ninja tactics to Mugen slicing enemies apart, left and right. Yuki, Takuma and, of course, Aiko also return, and players can still execute multi-kills with their squad using Shadow Mode. Three new main missions and interludes are being introduced, along with a new enemy for Aiko to face.
Ultimately, Aiko’s “choice” could dictate the fate of this foe (who apparently has connections to her past). Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun – Aiko’s Choice will be releasing for PC first, though it could arrive for PS4 and Xbox One later. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
