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.

The new features of the extension:
    • Return to the fascinating world of Shadow Tactics in early Edo Japan.
    • Experience one last adventure with your favorite characters as part of the story of the main game Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun.
    • Discover a whole new story about the Kunoichi adept Aiko, who faces a diabolical enemy from her past.
    • Experience three extensive main missions set in brand new environments, as well as three shorter intermediate missions.

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 opposing 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.

The extension will be available for PC at the end of 2021. And: Shadow Tactics is now so popular that the brand is also known as Board game implemented A corresponding crowdfunding project was run via Kickstarter.
