About Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

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 sword and shuriken. The Samurai Mugen is a bit more straight forward and can defeat more opponents at once at the expense of flexibility. Aiko is a master of camouflage when she distracts enemies as a Geisha, and the street child Yuki places traps and lures the enemies towards their deadly fate. Takuma, however, relies on his sniper rifle and takes care of enemies from a distance.

The player has to carefully evaluate his options in order to master challenging missions: how will the characters behave as a team? Which one is best equipped for each task? How can they master the given environment best? Come up with your own ingenious tactics to vanquish enemies and complete missions.


  • Comeback of a genre: Real-time tactics with stealth elements
  • Ninja, Samurai, Geisha, Trapper and Sniper – five simultaneously playable characters with unique and versatile skills
  • Challenging missions, worthy of a strategic mastermind
  • Thirteen missions with a free moving isometric camera perspective
