Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun Out Now


New release trailer available today; Shadow Tactics marks the comeback of the real-time stealth tactics genre; Challenging missons with more than 25 hours of play time; More than 30k players in the pre-release demo

HAMBURG, Germany – December 6, 2016 – Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is now available on Steam and GOG for Windows PC, Mac and Linux. The highly anticipated game by German developer Mimimi Productions and publisher Daedalic Entertainment brings back the popular real-time stealth tactics genre. A beautiful and detailed environment set in the Edo period of ancient Japan creates a compelling atmosphere. Control five simultaneously playable characters with unique and versatile skills to master challenging missions. Often enough, operating in stealth is key to successfully complete certain sections and become a strategic mastermind.

The game provides various ways to complete a mission, supporting different play styles and approaches. Players can gather in-game trophies for certain actions, like being fast or extra stealthy. The vigilant AI is hard to beat – better think about every step twice! Says Johannes Roth, CEO at Mimimi Productions: “We are extremely happy and proud to release Shadow Tactics today. Way more than 30.000 people played the demo and the feedback from the community was overwhelming. It looks like many people out there have been waiting for a game like this and if we can give people a good time playing Shadow Tactics we’ve reached our goal.”

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is available now for US$39,99 on Steam as well as GOG. The game will be available to download on 6 December 2016, 6pm CET/9am PST. A version for PS4 and Xbox One will be released in Spring 2017.
