Now this one we all saw coming a mile off. I can picture it now in the Sega boardroom…

So we’ve done Ghost Squad for Wii, what other lightgun arcade games can we port over to the Wii….. hmmmmmmmm?

A bit of a no brainer really.

Personally I’m really looking forward to this and looks like it could be excellent value as it will include HOTD 2 & 3 plus lots of extra new features. All I have to say is it better have HOTD 1 as a hidden unlockable!
