The well-received PS5, PS4 tactics title Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew is receiving one final free update today along with two paid DLC packs as developer Mimimi Games plans to close its doors. Each priced at $14.99, the expansions add new playable characters, missions, and areas to the game, extending the experience by "several hours". Both can be seen in the trailer above.
First up is Yuki's Wish, a DLC that brings back Yuki and Kuma from one of Mimimi Games' past titles Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun. You'll set off to the Japanese-themed island Dragon's Dream, where "an ancient dragon awaits, promising to grant wishes to the brave" across six new missions.
Then there's Zagan's Ritual, which adopts Gothic theming on an island inhabited by scientist Zagan the Apostate. There, you'll perform a dark ritual and uncover "the secrets of the Inquisition's holy flame through six enthralling missions, wielding Zagan's potent yet unstable powers against your foes".
If you'd rather not spend any money, the base Shadow Gambit experience is still being updated for free with Treasure Hunts. These are new quests in the endgame that invite you to find "legendary pirate treasures and artifacts". There'll be 14 of them in total, and they allow for a free-roaming experience across the original islands. You'll need to complete specific tasks to uncover the treasures, all of which are tracked on a new menu in the codex.
The base game will be discounted by 20 per cent this weekend, which we awarded an 8/10 in our Shadow Gambit PS5 review. "Planning a co-ordinated attack and then watching it unfold like clockwork is a pleasure that never gets old, and if you mess the whole thing up you can always just rewind time and tinker with your strategy until you get it right. These moments are Shadow Gambit at its best, and the game in a nutshell; it leaves you feeling like a tactical genius, even if it took you seven tries to get there."
This marks the final update from Mimimi Games, as the studio is unfortunately shutting down. This is because "future production costs are growing faster than potential revenues of our genre. The increased financial pressure and level of risk became unsustainable."
