On May 30th, Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered was announced for Nintendo Switch, by Saber Interactive. And I’ll be honest, I have not played Ghostbusters nor have I watched the movies (I probably should watch the 2016 reboot movie, though, as it has Melissa McCarthy and Chris Hemsworth in it).
Whilst little gameplay was shown, what was looked fun! Some might prefer the Luigi’s Mansion title releasing this year, although, both of the titles intrigue me.
Here’s the full announcement and trailer:
Saber Interactive has announced Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered, an HD re-release of the acclaimed action-adventure game featuring the original cast of Columbia Pictures’ classic films. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered delivers a unique story from Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis that captures the supernatural comedic fun and fright fans love from the franchise, which celebrates the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters this year.
As the new rookie on the Ghostbusters crew, you’ll team up with your favorite characters from the films, reunited by the voices of Aykroyd, Ramis, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson as Stantz, Spengler, Venkman and Zeddemore, alongside Annie Potts, Brian Doyle-Murray, William Atherton and Max von Sydow. 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 and save the Big Apple.
Hunt, fight and trap a variety of new and familiar ghouls and phantasms, all remastered in HD resolution. Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered equips you with cool gadgets and upgradeable weapons to play with in huge boss fights and destructible environments. Scan and analyze targets with the P.K.E. Meter and Paragoggles, then strap on your Proton Pack to wear ghosts down with the blast stream before wrangling them with the capture stream.
