Ghost in the Shell shooter adds words to its title ahead of western release


Class-based multiplayer shooter

Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex First Connection Online is being called Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – First Assault Online for its 2016 western release. Yes, that's a push back from the earlier 2015 date, though there will be a beta for GitS: SAC -- FAO in October. Sign up here.

"GitS: SAC -- FAO" is no "SATPOTPAQ," but kudos for trying.

I also love how the Japan/Korea name, First Connection, has been angry eyes'd up for the western release as First Assault. It's like how Kirby games in America all furrow his brow.

As I noted last year, the eight character class shooter shares little in common with the thematics of Ghost in the Shell, the original film particularly. Maybe if it was more concerned with social classes than combat classes! But seriously, pew pew. Yawn. Could be fun, but is also such a boring use of the license.
