Via Arcade Heroes comes news of SEGA Amusements’ lineup for IAAPA 2016, the biggest arcade and amusement industry trade show. Headlining what SEGA Amusements plans to have on show includes a new entry to the Ghost Squad series entitled Target Bravo: Operation Ghost. The game is described as a new two-player game which sees players sitting in a 55″ theater cabinet. The game features new weapons, gadgets and equipment as well as the ability to start at any stage in the game.
Given Target Bravo: Operation Ghost contains the Operation Ghost name, which was the 2011 sequel to Ghost Squad, it is likely based on the title and description that this is a reworked version of Operation Ghost with a stage select, new items, a sit down cabinet and possible graphical enhancements being what sets it apart from Operation Ghost. So while this is not likely the true third game in the series, it is very cool to see SEGA keeping the franchise alive.
After the break read SEGA Amusements’ press release for Target Bravo: Operation Ghost and learn about what other games SEGA has to show at IAAPA 2016
Target Bravo: Operation Ghost press release:
First up in the video category is Target Bravo: Operation Ghost a brand new two-player game brought to life in a 55” atmospheric theatre cabinet. Players are put in the shoes of a highly trained Special Forces agent. Then using precision shooting, quick reactions and brand new tools at their disposal players must complete their missions. With new weapons, gadgets and equipment, Target Bravo: Operation Ghost also allows players to start at any stage of the game, thereby encouraging them to come back and play their favourite stages again and again!
Also appearing at IAAPA is Let’s Go Island Dream Edition. If that name sounds familiar, it’s because Let’s Go Island Dream Edition released back in 2010. However, this new version of the game uses the Dream Raiders cabinet – Dream Raiders being a SEGA Amusements title that released in 2014 which we reviewed.
The new cabinet allows for the addition of motion and wind effects, as well as a nicely sized 55″ screen. While the game itself seems unchanged, this should give arcade goers a new reason to play this classic. The press release for Let’s Go Island Dream Edition is below:
Also in the video category is Let’s Go Island Dream Edition a reimagined game that is a follow-up to Sega’s number one action adventure game ‘Let’s Go Jungle’. With Let’s Go Island Dream Edition players are on a South Pacific island diving tour and soon end up in trouble with dastardly pirates. Players must work together to survive everything the island has to throw at them. The huge 55” screen, rapid-fire gameplay and brand new family fun dream motion seat all combine to make Let’s Go Island Dream Edition a fun adventure game.

Enjoyed playing this series in the arcade and on the Nintendo Wii. Sega should remake the series on the more high end consoles like Sega did with House of the Dead: Overkill on Ps3.
Will be interesting to see if TargetBravo:OperationGhost is a new game or modified OpGhost.
I played OperationGhost in its entirety in the arcade, and was quite disappointed looking at the end credits to find that the title had just about nothing done by Sega AM2. This appeared to be a farmed out job to some company in Korea or China. It really shows when you play the title, it has absolutely none of the feel or quality of the original GhostSquad.
GhostSquad, truly made by SegaAM2, is a gem.
Hey Sega, I still want my home version of VirtuaCop3!!!
