AU Shippin' Out January 22-January 25: NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams

Two Sega hits in one week!


The popular arcade shooter Ghost Squad is finally making its way to the Nintendo Wii. The game places you in the role of an elite Ghost Squad member during three missions. The first tasks you with saving the world's leaders from a sinister terrorist group called the Indigo Wolves. Soon after, the same group hijacks Air Force One and you must rescue the US President before they can escape. The third and final mission brings the fight to the Indigo Wolves, where you must rescue a hostage and make a tight escape up a river. Ghost Squad comes out around Australia on January 24.

NiGHTS started off life as a Sega Saturn game and quickly became a cult hit among the few that owned the console. Eleven years later, the series makes a return on the Wii with NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams. Nightopia is again under threat from nightmare monsters called nightmaren. Two children, Will and Helen, enter the mystical land during their sleep and must team up with a jester called Nights to save Nightopia. Expect to see NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams in stores this Thursday.
