South Korea's Nexon just released a trailer for its upcoming Ghost in the Shell first-person shooter. The online title is for PC and looks like it could be a good time.

According to an Inven interview, the game is slated for the first half of next year. Locations from Ghost in the Shell have been turned into game maps, and the title will have micro-transactions that, apparently, won't muck up the game balance.

No word yet on whether this will see a release outside South Korea.

DISCUSSION

Saw this earlier. Cannot be less excited if I tried.

Firstly... if you're going to make an action FPS, Ghost in the Shell is - although slightly interesting - pretty useless as an IP to feed off. The merits of the Ghost in the Shell universe come from the world building and morality. From an action perspective, it's routine sci-fi.

Second, if you have the license to Ghost in the Shell, and are not making an RPG, then you're doing it wrong.

Finally, Nexon are involved. I'd rather eat glass.
