2016's best game now out on console

2016's best video game - okay, one of 2016's best video games - has now been released on X-Box and PS4 (with a special mode to take advantage of the PS4 Pro's extra features).

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun is an isometric stealth game where the player has to guide a team of mismatched comrades in carrying out missions for the Shogun during Japan's Edo period. A combination of tactics, stealth, combat and puzzles guides the player through a good 30 hours of so of clever and well-written gameplay.

I gave the PC version of the game a full five-star review last year and spent some time a few months ago replaying the game from the start, which I rarely do with titles. It remains a remarkable and enjoyable experience. By all reports, the console versions do a good job of translating the game to those platforms.
