News: Can a Zapper attachment be far behind?
As part of their Gamer's Day press event, Sega has announced they are bringing the light gun shooter Ghost Squad to the Wii.
Ghost Squad will be a port of a classic arcade shooter from Sega. Players will become a member of the Global Humanitarian-Operation and Special Tactics Squad (GHOSTS) and attempt to rid the world of terrorists. To do this, players will have an arsenal of over 25 weapons including machine guns, submachine guns, pistols, sniper rifles, shotguns, and crossbows. Ghost Squad will feature an Arcade Mode and a four player Multiplayer Mode.
?Ghost Squad brings the classic light gun blaster experience that Sega made popular in the arcades to the Wii,? said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, Sega of America, Inc. ?With a more robust multiplayer experience than even the arcade version and numerous unlockable items and stages adding replay value, Ghost Squad will be the ultimate shooter experience for the Nintendo Wii console.?
Sega plans to release Ghost Squad during the end of the year "holiday season."
