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. You have to decide how to infiltrate hidden camps in the forest or living cities 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.
