Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex announced

Bandai Games have just announced that they’ll be bringing Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex to the PSP. Based on the anime series, this FPS will contain wireless deathmatch and cooperative modes.

“Cutting edge technology is one of the main themes in the ‘Ghost in the Shell’ series,” said Rika Maruya, Co-Producer of Bandai Games Inc. “We naturally wanted to take advantage of the wireless capabilities of the PSP to truly immerse gamers into an edgy, futuristic world of hackers and cybernetic entities.’”

Here’s the official feature list from the press release:

-Issue precise commands and orders to the sentient Think Tank, Tachikoma, to gain an advantage during heated battles

-Customize Tachikoma with unique accessories and change the personality of the tanks with different commands

-Choose from 51 different weapons; from hand guns to rocket launchers and sub-machine guns

-Play wirelessly in head-to-head battles

-Hack into enemies or surveillance systems to break down the terrorist cells
