Shadow Tactics official artwork and logo

[Update]: December 6th has now rolled around, and with it Aiko's Choice has finally been unleashed!

The original Shadow Tactics was a remarkably fun mixture of Commandos-style stealth and strategy, which is why I'm pleased to say that it's soon getting its very first expansion! Shadow Tactics - Aiko's Choice will be launching for Windows and Linux on December 6, 2021, and best of all, it'll be an entirely standalone addition!

In terms of content, Aiko's Choice will feature three lengthy missions set in brand new environments, three shorter 'interlude' missions, a highly specialized team of characters that each plays an important part, and as is tradition, a whole bunch of different ways to approach each obstacle.

You can get a pretty good idea of what all of this looks like in action through two of the recent previews. The first one is a fairly standard gameplay trailer, while the second is a developer FAQ discussing the expansion itself. Have a gander:

To learn more about Aiko's Choice, as well as Shadow Tactics in general, you should hop on over to Steam. Enjoy, and I'll make sure to let you know once the standalone expansion goes live.
