Shadow Tactics on consoles is a nice surprise

Bringing back those old Commandos vibes

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is perhaps the coolest stealth game I’m not currently playing. It’s a real-time tactical game set during Japan’s Edo period in which you manage a five-person team, figuring out when and where to best make use of your crew’s abilities and approaches to takedowns.

Darren dug the PC version enough to land on an eight out of ten for his review. That’ll surely remain the best place to play, but Shadow Tactics is also coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 1 (North America) and July 28 (Europe), both digitally and at retail. Wasn’t expecting that!

If you’re unsure this game (or this port) is the right match for you, there’ll be a demo at launch.
