From the press release:

    LONDON AND SAN FRANCISCO – SEGA Europe Ltd. and SEGA of America, Inc. today announced that the arcade hit Ghost Squad, is being developed for the Nintendo Wii™. Developed by the SEGA AM2 arcade division, Ghost Squad will use the Wii Remote™ as a multi-purpose tool to allow players easy control of the on-screen targeting of enemies, defusing bombs, and rescuing hostages. The daring Ghost Squad battle to bring peace to the world begins early 2008.

    Set in a world overrun with terrorism where the U.N. has been forced into creating the Global Humanitarian-Operation and Special Tactics Squad aka “Ghost Squad.” This team of elite soldiers comprise of the best of the best from both domestic and foreign military and special operations forces. Players signing up for the Ghost Squad will gain first hand experience of missions involving tremendous stealth, executing extreme prejudice upon terrorist subjects, and leaving a target area with no trace of being there.

    “Ghost Squad was a great success at the arcades because it provided players with instantly exciting gameplay, coupled alongside well thought out pace,” said Gary Knight, European Marketing Director, SEGA Europe Ltd. “The Wii version has mirrored this entirely and is a brilliant way to bring all the arcade excitement into gamers homes. Ghost Squad utilises the Wii Remote perfectly as a light gun, resulting in the game being a total blast.”

    Within a squad of four operatives, players will have to traverse three different mission locations, each comprising of multiple levels, with the possibility of unlocking over 25 high-powered weapons as they progress. Each level has a series of alternate routes, providing players with varying challenges as enemies ambush from unexpected and surprising hideouts. Weapon selection is varied across a wide range of weapon types from machine guns, submachine guns, pistols, sniper rifles, shotguns, and even crossbows.

    Ghost Squad features four different modes of play including Arcade mode, Multiplayer mode, Training mode, and Special mode. Players can also track their personal performances against other players via the Wii’s online functionality.
