From the publisher: SEGA's top-grossing light gun game, Ghost Squad, comes to the Wii™ system and replicates the excitement of the arcade experience in your home! The Ghost Squad is a Special Forces unit established in strict secrecy by the U.N. to combat terrorism and carry out special highly-classified missions without leaving a trace.

As an elite member of the Ghost Squad, players will complete dangerous missions such as eliminating terrorist groups, releasing hostages, deactivating bombs, and even rescuing the U.S. President when terrorists hijack Air Force One! Using the Wii Remote™, players will utilize revolutionary selectable weapons including a high-powered rifle, submachine gun and shotgun, or even engage in hand-to-hand combat.


Sega's arcade gun shooting game Ghost Squad is in stock today, shipping for Nintendo Wii™ as Game Only and With Wii Zapper Editions. An US Version is on preorder due next month.

Game features:
  • The full arcade experience of Ghost Squad comes to the Wii along with exclusive additional content, including a Multiplayer mode for 1-4 players and much more.
  • One of the first light gun games to arrive on the Wii, Ghost Squad will take full advantage of the unique controls of the Wii Remote.
  • Three dangerous missions bring a new gameplay experience every time with multiple levels, alternate routes, changing daylight, a variety of player choices and secret weapons and costumes to unlock.
  • Alone or with up to three squadmates, players will rescue hostages, apprehend suspects and deactivate bombs as they eliminate terrorist threats around the world.
  • Unlock 25 different tactical weapons including sniper and assault rifles, submachine guns, handguns, and more.
  • Ghost Squad operatives on missions in complete darkness will utilize night vision, thermo vision and a flashlight to ensure that the operation is a success.


Just like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Fuuketsu no Grimoir takes place in Ivalice. There are seven playable races in the game: Hume, Moogle, Viera, Bangaa, Seeq, Nu Mou and Gria. Chronologically, the game takes place some time after Final Fantasy XII.

Similar to Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Luso was a mischievous boy who lived in the real world until he was punished for a prank he pulled just before summer break. Locked away in the library, Luso finds an old book and writes his name on it. The book then transports him into the world of Ivalice. Rather than wishing to return home, Luso decides to venture the world farther. However, unlike in the previous installment, the main character travels to the real Ivalice, instead of a creation of his imagination born of strong feelings; this fact is reinforced by the reappearances of familiar characters such as Vaan and Penelo.

From the publisher: Thrillville™: Off the Rails™ amps up the family-friendly mix of gameplay that made Thrillville the best-selling original children's intellectual property of 2006 with some of the most outlandish roller-coaster concepts ever imagined, as well as new ways to talk to park guests and a new array of carnival games.
