Two New Ghost Recons Coming To The Wii And PSP In November

Man, Tom really gets around.

The Xbox 360 and PS3 won't be the only two platforms Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon will grace in the near future. Two separate entrants in the simulation shooter franchise are coming to the Wii and PSP this November, months before Future Soldier hits next-generation consoles. 

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Predator (or Ghost Recon Sri Lanka Jungle Adventure, as I'm imagining it could also be called) is the PSP game. Taking place in Sri Lanka, its story will revolve around a team of Ghosts helping prep the area for a US invasion. But as a war with Pakistan appears to be in the not-so-distant future, you'll find that the US has been targeting the wrong bad dudes all along. Uh oh.
 
The first images from Predator are right below. Notice the RC car.

Ubisoft says that Predator will feature an "exclusive tactical experience," giving you options between using stealth or open firepower in battle. In typical GR fashion, you'll also get access to a variety of war-time gadgets such as drones and be able to play the campaign with a couple of friends via ad-hoc.  
 
The Wii game, simply called Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon like the original title from 2001, takes place in Moscow. Two Ghosts, Hibbard and Booth, will be the movers and shakers in a title that seems to be wholly focused around pushing past hostiles on the way to a "target."

As you might have guessed, the game will have a prominent co-op component, but there's a catch: it's two third-person players per screen, implying that the second player will have a more auxiliary role as opposed to an active one. It's also possible, judging from the trailer below and the fact that Ubisoft threw out the word "casual" when describing the game, that it's entirely on-rails. What is confirmed, at least, is that GR will feature 12 missions and a leaderboard-oriented Arcade mode.
