How does a Ghost in the Shell MMO grab you? We're not sure whether it's a reality just yet, but we do know that Nexon has entered into a development agreement with manga publishing giant Kodansha to produce an online title based on Ghost in the Shell: STAND ALONE COMPLEX.

Nexon's press release offers no details on the game itself, so anything beyond the source material is guesswork at this point. The original Ghost in the Shell manga was met with critical and popular acclaim upon its 1989 release and has since been adapted into an extensive expanded universe that includes films, television shows, and a 1997 PlayStation game. Nexon's new title "will be based on the award-winning series Ghost in the Shell: STAND ALONE COMPLEX, Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG, and Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society."
