Super skeleton attack!

It's typical, isn't it? You wait months for a first-person, MotionPlus-utilising WiiWare title and then two come along at once. Not long after our hands-on with Rage of the Gladiator, Gevo Entertainment just emailed to let us know about its future WiiWare release GhostSlayer.

Like Rage, MotionPlus is optional for GhostSlayer, adding directional support to your attacks as opposed to the "shake it and see" approach used by the Remote alone. Familiar fighting gaming elements are present too, with special techniques, combo bonuses and directional blocking all available, with the emphasis on stringing together combo attacks to accumulate a high score.

Here's the official trailer to get you in a ghost-slaying mood.

With different swords to unlock as you progress, a range of enemy characters and an interesting score attack element, GhostSlayer certainly looks interesting, and with a Q1 release date pencilled-in we shouldn't have too long to wait to see whether it cuts the mustard.
