Ghost in the Shell: STAND ALONE COMPLEX early details revealed, Launches 2014
Nexon recently acquired the rights to the popular Manga/Anime series Ghost in the Shell. Not one to waste time, the publisher has announced their first title using the license. What genre you may ask? FPS. The FPS, which has a tentative name of 'Ghost in the Shell: STAND ALONE COMPLEX' is being touted as a game featuring "fierce hacking battles between cyborgs fighting over strategic resources". Nexon says the game will also incorporate cyberization and various other concepts that are present in the original work along with "new" diverse content such as a cooperative battle mode, which I am not sure could actually be called "new" except in reference to a game we still know really nothing about.
To be perfectly honest, "fierce battles over strategic resources" sounds like another term for the common FPS domination mode and cyberization, while cool sounding, makes me think of nothing more then the standard customization features present in practically every new FPS these days. I mean look how similar the words even are! Whether or not this is just a lot of early PR spin remains to be seen. We literally have over a year before release so it's unfair to judge the game based on a small PR blip. Keep in mind Nexon is just the publisher. The game is being developed by NeoPle, the developers most famous for Dungeon Fighter Online.
