Mimimi Games have revealed a new character, Toya of Iga, for their upcoming stealth strategy game, Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew. In a newly released Developer Insight trailer, viewers are given a sneak peek behind the game’s development and the new character.
In the Developer Insight trailer, Creative Director, Dominik Abé is paired up with Head of Design, Moritz Wagner to explain their vision of the game. The trailer gives a brief summary of the game and the degree of player freedom available during gameplay. Players are free to decide how to explore the game’s world and with which crew members.
Speaking of characters, the trailer also reveals Toya of Iga, the newest character to join Shadow Gambit: The Cursed Crew. As the latest member of the cursed pirate crew of the Red Marley, Toya acts as the ship’s cook. He prepares tasty soul-infused meals for the crew.
Toya of Iga is more than an excellent cook, he is a menace to foes in combat as an undead ninja assassin. Carrying a whistle, Toya can lure enemies to his current location where they can be eliminated. He can also place down a marker anywhere on the ground, later at any time using it to teleport back. This allows him to escape dangerous situations. Any enemy standing on the marker at teleport will be attacked.
