Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered has been announced.
It’s in development at Saber Interactive (World War Z, Quake Champions, Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo: The Master Chief Collection), and launches later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC via the Epic Games store (there’s no word of a Steam release, so this looks like another Epic PC exclusive job).
Ghostbusters: The Video Game came out in 2009 and was developed by the now defunct Terminal Reality. It stars many of the cast members from the films, including each of the actors who portrayed the Ghostbusters. Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, and Ernie Hudson lent their voices and likenesses to the game, while Aykroyd and Ramis worked on the story. You play the new rookie on the Ghostbusters crew as Manhattan is overrun, again, by ghosts.
Ex-Eurogamer scribe Ellie Gibson wrote our Ghostbusters: The Video Game review, awarding it a 7/10 (remember review scores?). “If you love the film it’s impossible not to like this game, despite its faults,” Ellie said. “That would be like hating a puppy just because it’s got a wonky leg. This might not be the best video game ever made but it’s one of the better movie tie-ins out there, and it’s the closest to being a Ghostbuster most of us will ever get.”
