Arcade light gun games coming to the Wii starting with Ghost Squad


Sega announced that they have Ghost Squad, an 2005 arcade light gun game, scheduled to come out for the Wii in Holiday 2007. In Ghost Squad players are a squad member in the Global Humanitarian-Operation and Special Tactics Squad (Ghost Squad) and players use 25 weapons to combat terrorists. The arcade game is your standard light gun fare, except the rifles we’re pretty large compared to Time Crisis’ tiny pistol. The Wii release will still be a light gun game, except they are adding in new control schemes and a four player multiplayer mode. I’ve been waiting for Sega and Namco Bandai to start releasing their arcade light gun games on the Wii. It’s really a good choice since you don’t need any extra equipment to replicate the arcade experience. Now that Ghost Squad is in development I’m hoping that House of the Dead 4 gets a Wii remake. You wouldn’t even need a special gun to shake off zombies, since the Wii remote has accelerometers built into it.
