Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun - Aiko's Choice releases in December

By - | Views: 8,544

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun - Aiko's Choice from Mimimi Games is going to be releasing in December and they have a new trailer ready.

This is the standalone addon that takes place after the original Shadow Tactics. Set in Japan around the Edo period, you take control of kunoichi adept Aiko and her deadly assassin friends to hunt down the ghosts of her past. The new trailer goes over the story so far up to the point where the story of Aiko's Choice will set off. So keep in mind it's probably a bit spoilery if you've not played the original game.

Speaking over email to see if they were still doing a native Linux release, the developer said this: "Hi there, we’re planning to add Linux but cannot tell when yet. The team is doing their best to deliver a Linux version on release. But it also might happen that we will have to deliver the version a little later. We'll share an update as soon as we know."

It will be available on GOG (no store page yet) and Steam.

Oh, very nice! Loved the base game.
After Desperados III, I don't have any expectations anymore when it comes to a Linux release on But if the game gets a Linux release on, I wouldn't hesitate to immediately pick it up.

It took me some time (and I still stand to what I've written before; they should've done without the badges), but after giving Shadow Tactics a second chance, I was enjoying it tremendously. Still haven't finished it, but as I've said, I'd gladly add Aiko's Choice to the main game.
