SAN FRANCISCO (November 20, 2007) – SEGA of America, Inc. today announced Ghost Squad for the Wii home video game system has shipped to retailers in North America. Developed by SEGA's AM RandD Department #2 arcade division, Ghost Squad became a smash hit upon release and was the top-earning arcade gun game in 2004. The Wii version brings the arcade experience home and adds a number of new Wii-specific gameplay modes and features. Ghost Squad is one of the finest games to support the use of the Wii Zapper as a multi-purpose tool that allows players to easily control the targeting of on-screen enemies, defuse bombs and rescue hostages. The release of Ghost Squad bolsters SEGA's library of genre-defining Wii titles.
With gameplay for up to four players, gamers will traverse three different mission areas, each comprised of multiple difficulty levels, while unlocking 25 high-powered weapons and 14 different costumes. Within each level, a series of selectable alternate routes appear that will provide the player with challenges increasing in difficulty as enemies attack from unexpected places. Weapon selection is varied with choices ranging from machine guns, submachine guns, pistols, sniper rifles, shotguns and even a crossbow. Ghost Squad will feature an Arcade mode, a Training mode, a Party mode for up to four players and two hidden, unlockable modes exclusively designed for the Wii version.
"Ghost Squad presents a classic genre of games to an entirely new generation of players on the Wii," said Rick Naylor, Director of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "Combined with the use of the Wii Zapper, Ghost Squad delivers an unparalleled arcade, light gun gaming experience at home."
