Remember that “augmented reality” Nintendo DSi title Ghostwire? No, well Majesco has snatched up the publishing rights for the game, which is set for release in late 2010.
Now let’s get you caught up: Ghostwire: Linked to the Paranormal uses the DSi camera to allow players to scan their own environment in order to find spirits “above the standard Wi-Fi range.” The ghosts are each said to have their own personality — some shy, some nasty — with some requiring you to bring them “gifts” just so they’ll interact with you.
Ghostwire has the potential to be pretty neat, provided there’s an actual game around all of that neat camera trickery. 2010 is a long wait; we hope to see more soon.
