Shadow Tactics official artwork and logo

If games that combine strategy and stealth in equal measure tickle your fancy, and especially if you're a fan of the oldschool Commandos series, you might be interested to hear that Shadow Tactics is getting its very first expansion today - Aiko's Choice. The standalone expansion will bring with it a variety of new missions to undertake, a highly specialized team of characters that all play an important part, and most importantly of all, maps that offer plenty of different ways to approach each objective and obstacle.

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you two of the recently posted previews. The first is a fairly standard gameplay trailer that will give you a better idea of what Aiko's Choice will play like, while the second is a developer-guided FAQ detailing some of the new features. Have a gander:

While I haven't played the expansion just yet, the original Shadow Tactics is one of the better strategy games I've played in the last couple of years. So if you're even remotely interested in the concept, I'd highly recommend keeping an eye on Aiko's Choice once it lands onto PC later today. Given Mimimi Games' work so far, odds are it'll be a pretty darn good one!

Whatever the case may be, you can learn more about Aiko's Choice, as well as check out some of the user reviews, over at Steam.
