(PSP Game Edition)
Shotaro Suga and Ryo Hikawa from Studio 9 at Production I.G wrote the all-new script for this game.
A full voice system was achieved with cast members from the TV show as well as other top voice actors.
Four types of Tachikoma tanks appear in the story with different intelligence and character traits. The player can set a Tachikoma's behavior pattern and weapons according to his or her preference during the game. This will be a strong asset for any player. Optical camouflage, hacking devices and traps can be used to accommodate highly strategic battles.
The game is distributed in Japan with the title Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Hunter's Arena.
AD 2030. May.
A terrorist group takes hostages in the Niihama National Archives. They are requesting a document called "H-88 Report," an investigative report of a coup attempt led by then General Michiba years before.
The H-88 Report was just about to be released to the public after twenty years in safekeeping. Section 9, dispatched to rescue the hostages, manages to eliminate the terrorists, but the bomb goes off and the identity of the criminals remain unknown.
Three months after the terrorist attack at Niihama, Section 9 heads for the Far North. Its task is to intercept a plot to assassinate Hiruma, a former member of the cabinet, who will be attending his hand over ceremony. Aramaki, along with Motoko, Batou, Togusa, Saito and four Tachikoma, are patrolling the ceremony in the northern tip of the country away from Niihama.
But an enormous amount of explosives is set to go off at the site, the VIP's and their family members who had planned to attend the ceremony are kidnapped, and the suspect of these incidents is infected with a virus. Section 9 members must solve this series of incidents one by one!
