Ghost Hunting with your DS

Ghost Hunting with your DS

Nintendo DSi

The Nintendo DSi has been released a few months back, but I haven’t had the urge to buy one since I already have a DS Lite, and there are no new games in the market that utilize the new features.

Until now.

Ghostwire Promo

Ghostwire is an augmented-reality game that let’s you hunt ghosts using your Nintendo DSi.

According to developer A Different Game,

Your portable device is used as a portal to the astral plane, and helps you find and collect ghosts that exist all around you. In your quest you use real tools, such as the built-in camera and microphone, as well as abstract ones like an “EMF tuner” for tracking down the ghosts.

Once you find the spirits, you document them and find out why they haunt our world. They also give you riddles to solve. Ultimately, you will help them find peace.

As far as I can see, this is just motion-tracking with a layer of ghost images for you to ‘interact’ with. But since it promises full-game immersion, it’s a good reason to buy the DSi soon. It reminds me of the game Fatal Frame, with the main difference of holding the ‘camera’ and hunt the ghosts yourself to zero in on that ‘fatal frame’ shot.

No announcements for the release date yet, but you can check out the official game trailer below:
