Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun: First Gameplay-Material at E3
Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun had a small showing during the Xbox E3 Briefing, but now, thanks to some brand new screens and an indepth developer walkthrough.
In the year 1615, a new Shogun rises to power in Japan and strives to bring peace to the realm. In his battle against rebellion he recruits five specialists with extraordinary skills for assassination, sabotage and espionage.
One part of this team is Hayato, an agile ninja, who clears the way through his enemies silently with a sword and shuriken. The Samurai Mugen is a bit more violent and can defeat more fiends at one time, but therefore, he’s forfeiting flexibility. Aiko is a master of camouflage when she distracts enemies as a Geisha, and the street child Yuki places traps and decoys the enemies towards their deadly fate. However, Takuma counts on his sniper rifle and takes care of the enemies from a distance.
The player has to carefully evaluate his options in order to master the challenging missions: how will the characters behave as a team? Which one is best equipped for each task? How can they best master the given environments? Come up with your own ingenious tactics to vanquish enemies and complete missions.
Daedalic Entertainment and Mimimi Productions release Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun in Q4 2016 for PC, Mac, Linux as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
