Nexon to produce a new Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex game
Major online games publisher Nexon has entered into an agreement to develop and publish a game based on the Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex animated TV series.
The game will be based on both the 1st and 2nd Gigs of the TV series along with the Solid State Society series which have grown from Masamune Shirow's immensely popular 1989 Ghost In The Shell manga.
"We are very pleased to have given the opportunity to work with Kodansha in the development of games for the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex franchise, which is highly popular worldwide. We will add Nexons wide-ranging experiences and know-how to the original creation in order to develop high quality games to meet the expectations of all its fans," said Nexon CEO Seungwoo Choi.
The series will produce quite interesting fodder for Nexon's MMO developers as the stories explore the nature of human identity in the context of a society that operates more and more in virtual environments. This could be fascinating...
