When I last told you of Ghostwire, the game was not much more than a concept that caught my imagination. In an announcement made just in time for Halloween, Majesco sent word that they will distribute the DSi game, and they even changed the name to Ghostwire: Link to the Paranormal. It will be available in late 2010.
Ghostwire's "augmented reality" turns your portable device into a ghost-finding machine. You use your stylus to tune into ghost frequencies, then look through the DSi's viewfinder at the room you're actually in and you'll see ghouls, phantoms, willow-the-wisps, spooks, apparitions, ethereal beings, shades, specters, wraiths, and other assorted spirits super-imposed on the real world. Spooky, right? Obviously, you'll need the DSi's camera for this to work, so old-school DS owners are out of luck.
Whether the decision to buy the game and change its name has anything to do with the success of the film Paranormal Activity isn't known, but you don't have to consult with the dead through a Ouija board to think it's a definite possibility.
