*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 R&D 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
