Kalypso Media and Daedalic Entertainment are proud to announce that the highly-acclaimed Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is now available on Xbox One and PlayStation®4 worldwide, bringing the real-time stealth tactics title to consoles for the first time. Set in the Edo period of ancient Japan, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is a hardcore tactical stealth game in which players control five unique characters, using their versatile skills to complete challenging missions without getting caught.

To celebrate the release of Shadow Tactics: Blade of the Shogun, Kalypso and Daedalic present a new gameplay trailer for the game, as well as a free demo available now on both console platforms, allowing would-be ninjas the chance to try the game before they buy.

Optimized for play on Playstation®4 and Xbox One, the console version of Shadow Tactics brings authentic stealth gameplay to a whole new audience. Whether you’re luring the shogun’s guards with a strategically placed bottle of sake or unleashing a whirlwind of swords to take out an entire group, there is no one way to complete each mission. Utilize Shadow Mode to coordinate your characters and allow them to execute complex strategies simultaneously. Whether you prefer the Ninja, Samurai, Geisha, Trapper, or Sniper, be sure to employ each of their skills ruthlessly as you mastermind your grand stealth operations.

Shadow Tactics is a hardcore tactical stealth game set in Japan around the Edo period. Take control of a team of deadly specialists and sneak in the shadows between dozens of enemies. Choose your approach when infiltrating mighty castles, snowy mountain monasteries or hidden forest camps. Set traps, poison your opponents or completely avoid enemy contact.

The group is composed of very different personalities. Working together as a team seems impossible at first. Yet over the course of many missions, trust is won and friendships are made as each character faces their own personal demons.

In Shadow Tactics, you will have to carefully evaluate your options in order to master the challenging missions, picking the right team member for each task and devising your own ingenious tactics to vanquish enemies and complete missions.
