- TRIVIA -


On the title screen, there is a tombstone that makes a reference to Sega's 1989 shooter "Line of Fire".


There are two gimmicks about Laser Ghost. The first one is that the cabinet has 2 removable benches for players 1 and 3. The second gimmick is that the laser guns have a laser imaging device on top of the guns which gives the illusion of shooting real lasers onto the screen.


Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Formula : G.S.M. Sega 5 - PCCB-00059) on 21/04/1991.
