Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered Trailer
Check out the trailer below.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game is slated for release on PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One on October 4, priced at £24.99. The game is a full high-definition revamp of the original Ghostbusters: The Video Game, which launched on PS3 a decade ago (blimey, has it really been that long?).
Ghostbusters is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year, so the time is spot on. Much like the original version, the remastered edition of the spook-catching action title sees players controlling the latest rookie on the Ghostbusters team, as you join a lineup if iconic characters modelled on and voiced by the likes of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson.
Here’s the official blurb:
Manhattan is overrun once more by ghosts, demons and other paranormal creatures unleashed by a mysterious force, and only the Ghostbusters can drive this evil back to whatever dimension it crawled from. Hunt and trap a variety of new and infamous ghouls and phantasms — all remastered in HD resolution — with cool gadgets and weapons, thrilling boss fights, and destructible environments.
Aside from the cast, the game also includes the soundtrack from the first Ghostbusters film as well as appearances from key characters, locations, and props featured in the movies. Ghostbusters: The Video Game takes place two years after the events of Ghostbusters II, placing the story around Thanksgiving 1991.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game was a pretty big success, selling over one million copies and attracted some positive reviews in the process. Interestingly, the game was development at a time when Aykroyd and Ramis were penning a script for a third Ghostbusters film.
