Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun – Aiko’s Choice focuses on one of the main game’s protagonists: the kunoichi adept Aiko. She is a master of cloaking and distracts enemies dressed as a geisha. While Aiko was certain that she left her old life behind. It seems her former sensei, the cunning spymaster Lady Chiyo, reappears from the shadows to challenge her. Together with her friends, a group of deadly assassins, she sets out to hunt down the ghosts of her past.

The expansion features three full fledged main missions. There are also brand new settings and three shorter interlude missions.
