Namco Hometek today announced that SCE Studios Cambridge's Ghosthunter has begun shipping to retail across North America.
In this survival horror action game from Sony, players slip into the role of young policeman Lazarus Jones, who stumbles upon the defunct lab of parapsychologist Professor Richmond. Not knowing what they have discovered, Lazarus and his partner, Anna Steele, make a grave mistake and accidentally release the professor's collection of malevolent ghosts upon the unsuspecting public. The vengeful ghosts immediately abduct the policeman's female partner, but luckily Lazarus somehow achieves the gift of second sight that enables him to see the creatures of the night. A new ghost hunter is born. The actual gameplay mechanics follow the "gotta catch 'em all" concept. Stun ghosts, then capture them Ghostbusters-style.
