First Gameplay Footage for Shadow Tactics – Blades of the Shogun

By Lexley Ford, 4 months ago
At E3 this week, Mimimi Productions took the time to show off the first gameplay video from Shadow Tactics – Blades of the Shogun, their upcoming real-time tactics title.  In this official gameplay video, Creative Director Dominik Abé takes us through an early level of the game and explains some of the basic gameplay mechanics and special abilities of two of the five playable characters: Hayato, an agile Ninja who deftly takes out enemies from the shadows, and the trapper Yuki, who is adept in the art of traps and deception.

The beta footage and screenshots below are from the PC version of the game, but they do give us a good idea of what we can expect when the title hits consoles:

Shadow Tactics - Blades of the Shogun is expected to launch sometime in Q4 2016.
