Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is now out, allowing gamers to dive in a world ruled by assassination, sabotage and espionage. This hardcore tactical stealth game is set in Japan around the Edo period when a new Shogun seizes power over the land.
Players will take control of a team of deadly specialists and sneak in the shadows behind enemy lines. You’ll always need to be one step ahead of your enemies, as you infiltrate mighty castles, set traps, or even poison your opponents.
