Acclaimed stealth game Shadow Tactics getting standalone expansion

Aiko’s Choice coming to PC later this year.

Developer Mimimi Games’ superb stealth tactics game Shadow Tactics: Blade of the Shogun is getting a standalone expansion. It’s called Aiko’s Choice and is coming to PC later this year.

Aiko’s Choice returns players to gorgeous Edo period Japan, giving them control of kunoichi adept Aiko – one of the protagonists featured in the main game – alongside her playable assassin pals, each with their own unique skills sets.

Stealth is once more the order of the day and players will have a range of tools at their disposal as they assist as Aiko in her quest (which can be tackled across three difficulty settings) to hunt down a vicious enemy from her past.

Aiko herself is a master of camouflage who can distract enemies disguised as a Geisha, and players can switch between non-lethal and deadly attacks on their journey, lay traps, poison enemies, even avoid confrontation altogether if their stealth skills are up to the task.

Aiko’s Choice will feature three main missions, set across brand-new environments, alongside three shorter interlude missions when it comes to PC “late 2021”.
